On the 26th June, 2012, I gave a one-hour session on "Blogging for Faculty" as part of the monthly Technology Tuesdays. I turned this presentation into an Apple iBook, which you can download to an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch and read on the iBook App. The iBook contains both text and video. The video is not quite as good as it could be - I used a different microphone to make the recording, rather than my usual one. However, I think I get the message across.
From this point on, I will attempt to use iBooks for more of my handouts. The handouts will continue to be available as PDFs as well.
You can download the iBook from the Technology Tuesday page, or direct from here. You will need the iBooks App to view the file.
Electronic text has the potential to be a huge disrupter to the educational environment (and the effects are already visible). In this Technology Tuesdays session learn what ebook options are available for your and your students to use. You will also discover how you can create your own ebooks and etextbooks, Providers/options that will be covered include:
- Apple iBooks Author
- Barnes and Noble NOOK Study
- DePaul Library Ebooks
- Flat World Knowledge
- Project Gutenberg
- Safari Online
