Corse Description:

Do your students have iPads? Do you have content that you’d like to publish as your own textbook? Wish you could bring all your resources into one place and get them out to your students or to other educators? In this workshop you will learn how to create and
publish your own textbook that can be distributed either for free or for a price via the Apple iBookstore. This workshop will be hands on and you will leave with your own published iBook.

Purpose:

Teach participants how to create their own digital textbooks or supplemental materials that can be distributed to anyone running iOS (or compatible eReader)
