iBook Author: Mobilize Your Library

I'm taking a class this summer on designing and creating mobile lessons, and I really want to wrap my head around iBook Author as part of this.  People throw around the "game-changer" label far to liberally when it comes to tech and apps, but I suspect this comes close.

Mostly what I'd like to do is put all my library lesson into mobile format, with something more meaningful than simple a video of my Keynote slides with me doing a voiceover.

We'll see how it goes, and I'll certainly make them available for general use when they're finished!

In the meantim, if you're interested in doing that yourself,  the wonderful Apps in Education blog compiled an exhaustive list of iBook Author tutorials.  Check them out!

For better or worse, AOF is good to go for next week.  Please join us!   You'll find our landing page here, and it will walk you through the steps to get set up on Facebook.

This project has taken so much longer than I thought it would, for all kinds of reasons, and we've certainly been working on other things while we get this in place.  Now that the time is near, the kids are pretty excited.  I'm simultaneously looking forward to it, and wondering if we'll go down in flames.

Oh, well.  It's all a learning opportunity, right?

After it all dies down next week, I will post the rest of the "how to."  Setting up the FB pages got a little involved, and we had to do some work arounds, so I'll share all the ins and outs, in case any brave souls decide to take on a similar project!

See you on Facebook!
