Using iBooks Author: A Video How To

» 29 February 2012 » In Ed Tech, History / DBQ's, How To, Publishing »

For years, I've posted pdf versions of my lessons and made them available for free. Here's some screenshots of a document based question (DBQ) I'm working on that explores the American Homefront in WWII. To see more of my free pdf lessons click here

I've download iBooks Author and I think it's time to turn some of my PDF lessons into iBooks. Apple's new authoring program, certainly lowers the barrier for doing that. I look forward to the day when a student asks a teacher if it's OK to turn in that project as an iBook.

While searching the internet for some how to guides, I found this great video introduction to the process made by Jeremy Kemp.
