For September 1, 2012: Take your lessons to a whole new level with the free iBooks Author app for Mac. Create dynamic content for your students, including text, photo galleries, interactive visuals, movies, and chapter reviews. You can even add flash by using Google's Swiffy <> converter program. There are several ways to publish your free iBook: Submit it to iBookstore, export it to iTunes University, or post it on your webpage. If you want to sell your iBook, then you must obtain an ISBN number and submit it to iBookstore. Once you have created and published your content, your students can download the iBook to their iPad and begin the learning process. As an alternative, you can project the content to a smartboard for the entire class. This is a really cool tool for Mac lovers.
