A few months ago Apple claimed they were going to re-invent education, with that they released iBooks for the iPad, making the backbreaking old method of carting books around in a back pack, and having the ability to put all of your books on a single iPad. At the same time they also released iBooks Author. iBooks Author is a great free application offered by Apple that allows everyone to create multimedia books for the iPad. For teachers this application is great. You can add all sorts of multimedia, video, picture slideshows, and text, You can even create chapter reviews and even quizzes. You can publish the books locally, upload them to iTunes for distribution (if they are free). Additionally if you want to jump through a few hoops you can also sell your next great multimedia book on iTunes for a profit.
The application has the usual Apple ease of use. If you can drag and drop you can create a book. Let your creativity run wild. You can create anything from tech-manuals for how to do technical things to competing with Rachel Rey and make your own cookbook. You are only limited by your time and imagination. You can find the application here and it’s our favorite price FREE!
