Boring page turner eBooks—often created just to get content out to learners—can be taken to a new level with engaging, interactive iBooks Author books. Learners should be engaged with a review or game to help them learn content by doing, instead of just reading.

In this session, you will learn—using iBooks Author—what it takes to create beautiful, multi-touch textbooks and just about any other kind of book for iPad without being a programmer. You will discover how these books bring content to life in ways the printed page never could with galleries, video, interactive diagrams, 3-D objects, and mathematical expressions. You will dive deep into building interactive iBooks and walk away with some working examples you can use for your own iBooks development.

  • The basics of iBooks Author
