iBooks Author is a free ebook authoring tool by Apple that runs on the Mac platform. It enables easy creation of interactive ebooks that can be sold or offered for free through Apple’s iBooks store. It also allows for exporting non-interactive PDF versions that can be sold anywhere. The interactive ebooks will run on iPads and can include embedded multimedia, such as slide shows, movies, quizzes, 3D images, embedded math formulas, and more.
In this informal talk, we’ll look at examples of some titles created with this tool, show the interface and how it works, and discuss why this is of interest to those looking to create interactive books.
Hope to see you there!
