Who Should Attend
Anyone that wants to create and publish iBooks. This includes teachers, trainers, lecturers and self publishing professional authors.
In this course, Apple certified master trainer and consultant Andy Day demonstrates how to use the Apple iBooks Author application to create and publish your own iBook, without extensive design or publishing experience.
We will assemble, refine, and publish a dynamic and engaging iBook for distribution on the iPad using the iBooks app. The course demonstrates the process of adding all of the components of a dynamic iBook, including engaging text, images, audio, video, 3D models, and dynamic web content. It also shows how to customise the iBooks Author interface and leverage built-in templates to produce a beautifully designed and polished iBook. The course wraps up with a review of the iBookstore publishing process.
