Creating Materials Using iBooks Author - Room: 206
Create and publish amazing books for iPad and Mac.  iBooks Author is an amazing app that allows anyone to create beautiful iBooks textbooks — and just about any other kind of book — for iPad and Mac. With galleries, video, interactive diagrams, 3D objects, mathematical expressions, and more, these books bring content to life in ways the printed page never could. Building a book is as easy as dragging and dropping.  iBooks Author makes it simple to add text, graphics, movies, and more, so your book looks exactly the way you want. Drag and drop a Pages or Microsoft Word document to the Book pane to add it as a new section. Then, when you drag and drop in images, your text automatically flows around them. https://www.apple.com/ibooks-author/
