Meet Apple's New iBooks Author, iTunes U & iTunes U Course Manager

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Teachers have been making books with their students forever.  Real publication brings out the best in all writers, and teachers know this.  But what if those books could be digital?  And what if those books could include all types of media, from text and still images to video, 3-dimensional objects, independent assessment, note-card generation, interactive images, and more? Head here www.apple.com/ibooks-author/ to learn more, and then come to this session to see how easy it is build these books, and to view them on iPad.

You probably know Apple's iTunes U as a wonderfully rich collection of teaching & learning resources.  All sorts of things - from Library of Congress text, image and video content to materials posted by the Maine Department of Education in support of the MLTI, and so much more. The new iTunes U app for iOS allows access to iTunes U courses that can contain all sorts of content along with assignments and commentary. In addition, through iTunes U Course Manager, K-12 institution faculty can now create these courses independently.  Head here: www.apple.com/education/itunes-u/ to learn more, and then plan to come to this session to experience iTunes U &  iTunes U Course Manager in action.
