Enhancing eBook Elements and Expanding iBooks Author
Limited Capacity seats available

Want an opportunity to learn about and use more of the tools and techniques available for ebooks? Participants will create their own content and generate widgets using that content with tools such as interactive Keynote, 3D, Bookry.com, and other resources. We will focus on using iBooks Author as a student learning tool rather than a teacher content tool. Plan to be engaged with hands on learning. Participants should have working knowledge of iBooks Author for this intermediate level workshop.
