ELI 2013 > The Professor as Digital Author and Publisher: Creating and Delivering E-Textbooks with iBooks Author and iTunesU > February 4 2013

Date: February 4 2013 > Time: 3:45 PM - 4:30 PM MT

The method of delivery can be as compelling as the content itself. This session will guide participants through the process of creating interactive content for undergraduate/graduate students via iPad and iTunesU, including demos of courses previously taught. Using iBook Author, textbooks are developed from faculty content using instructional assets such as text, photos / graphics, presentations (slides), audio/music and video. The organization of these assets into chapters and pages provides for a familiar metaphor for faculty and students alike that is immersive and interactive. Deploying these texts to iPads is accomplished via the iTunesU app and web-based backend.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Experience hands-on opportunities to work with iBooks Author to create content for the iPad 
  • Learn the most helpful software tools and resources for iPad based e-textbook creation and delivery 
  • Experience and understand best practices for e-textbook development and their use in teaching undergraduate and graduate students 
  • Get free digital resources to use in your efforts with e-textbook development at your institutions 
  • Begin to make individual decisions regarding the adoption and adaption of e-textbook development and deployment in your content area
