Hands on with iBooks Author for Mac

One of the big announcements at Apple's Education event was iBooks Author, a Mac application for creating books and textbooks for iBooks. I could that say I spent a better part of the day experimenting and learning how to use iBooks Author, but that'd be a lie. I spent more time typing out content then I did learning how to use the app.

After creating your book, it is incredibly easy to see how it looks on your iPad. Simply plug in your iPad, open iBooks, then click Preview in iBooks Author. The app immediately starts exporting your book and, boom, appears on your iPad. When you close everything down and unplug your iPad, your book will still be accessible in iBooks so that you can take a closer look at it from the comfort of your couch.

I never imagined that creating this type of content would be so easy - and free.

Alli's most used iPhone and iPad accessories of 2011

I love my accessories, and while I don't have as many cases as some of the ladies in our forums (you know who you are!), I have racked up quite a large collection of "stuff." I'm going to begin my list of most used iPhone and iPad accessories with my favorite accessory that goes with everything, and then one for each of my treasured Apple gadgets.

Hands on with iTunes U for iPad

One of the big announcements at Apple's Education event was iTunes U for the iPhone and iPad. I've done some poking around the iPad version and have been very impressed.

The Catalogue is laid out exactly like the App Store and iBookstore, so everyone is already familiar with how to browse it and subscribe to courses. The iTunes U library is where you'll find all the courses you are subscribed to and it looks similar to the bookshelf in iBooks.

Inside a course, you'll find all the info an instructor chooses to share about the class, including catalogue information and the course outline, structure, and syllabus. Instructors can also make posts to the course with more information about lectures as well as documents and videos. Additionally, students can take notes in a designated area of the course page and quickly access all course materials.

As a college instructor, I look forward to using iTunes U as a way to supplement content and materials for my classes.

Hands on with textbooks in iBooks for iPad

Immediately following Apple's Education Event, I downloaded a couple textbooks from the iBookstore, namely, Geometry and Chemistry. I've done some browsing and am very impressed with what Apple and the publishers have done with these textbooks.

On the surface, the books look like typical textbooks, but a simple touch brings the pages to life. You can enlarge images, flip through slideshows, watch videos and examples, take sample quizzes, and more. One of my favorites features is that there are flashcards pre-created with all the terms and definitions from each chapter. You can also create your own cards from highlighted text and user-created notes.

This is just the beginning of textbooks in the iBookstore and I'm looking forward to seeing how this all plays out.

If you're deeply invested in a certain league or a specific game but can't be there to watch it unfold, LiveScore is the best way to follow along, right on your iPhone, from where ever you may be.
