Do you know which production tools the teachers used on the wiki to create the e-books? Was it done in Power Point?
I guess I was a little vague with my response... hope the following is helpful.
Working from their MacBook Pros, the teachers used Pages to begin creating the e-books for their classrooms. Once they created their final document in Pages they exported it to an ePub file format. (File>Export>ePub) After loading the ePub file to their wiki page the students downloaded the document into their "iBooks library." ( I know they are using Keynote to create downloadable movies for their students as well. )
I held a meeting at Collegiate last year where we discussed digital texts....
Here's a link to our notes:
I also recommend reaching out to Jim Foley: St. Luke's School and Bill Campbell at Dwight-Englewood School.
This is a brand new app and it's free. It is supposed to be for composing ebooks.
I've downloaded it, but have not looked at it just yet!
Thank you, Candace. I've just downloaded it and plan to try it out soon. It is taking a really long time to download.
And thank you to Mara and Alex for their replies too.
