I tried a number of tools but just wasn’t satisfied until I found Kotobee Author. Like iBooks Author it is free to download, but it will run on most platforms so you don’t have to be a Mac owner to use it, but what’s really great about Kotobee is its ability to export to so many different formats and platforms.

What the flip? Exploring technologies to support a flipped classroom

What the flip? Exploring technologies to support a flipped classroom | Teaching with CALL | Scoop.it
A flipped classroom is one where the lectures become the homework and the traditional homework tasks take place in the lesson time. This enables students to attend sessions with an understanding of the subject and to conceptualise and build upon it through doing exercises in class, with you, as the tutor, on hand to answer questions and explore the topic in more detail

Why Is A Virtual Classroom Better Than A Real One? - eLearning Industry

Why Is A Virtual Classroom Better Than A Real One? - eLearning Industry | Teaching with CALL | Scoop.it
On the whole, modern eLearning systems should provide an opportunity to share both knowledge and experience. In addition, online courses should be individualized, but still offer a way to give and receive feedback. There should also be a track record of everybody’s progress and achievements. All these facilities make modern eLearning highly effective, and demonstrate the advantages of a virtual classroom over a traditional one.
