A short set of podcasts to explore the uses of Pages software to create multimedia-rich ePUB documents to be viewed using iPads. These are not your father's eBooks! The introductory episode leans towards iPads for literacy development and the "Creatures of the Caribbean" ebook is an example of an ePUB you can download to view in iBooks. Feedback is appreciated!

This was great. We are getting ipads in the classroom in the fall and this helped with ideas. Thanks
Thanks! Feedback is appreciated.
Thanks very much for the feedback. I think having students create their own eBooks could be a very rewarding project-based lesson. One teacher in a district nearby is starting to utilize them - hopefully I can do a segment on their idea as well. Stay tuned!
