This is an amazing resource! It makes creating an iTunes course extraordinarily simple! Kudos to the author. I couldn't resist changing my strategy from creating an ePub to creating an iTunes course because there are some incredible advantages that I just wasn't aware of before now. Thanks for the clear, concise directions and tips.
