Digital Textbook Design: Introduction, Applications, and Publication

Presented by Brad Thompson
Session Type: Practice

Today’s students have grown up completely immersed in technology; the iPad, iPhone, tablet, computer — these are the ways they interact with their world. Multi-touch digital textbooks offer a visual, full-screen experience full of interactive diagrams, photos, and videos made for the way they learn. No longer limited to static pictures to illustrate the text, now students can dive into an image with interactive captions, watch embedded video, rotate a 3D object, or have the answer spring to life in a chapter review. In this session, we will discuss how higher education institutions around the country are incorporating this new educational technology, what relevant and realistic applications could be implemented here at Delaware Technical Community College, and how to design, create, and publish your own iBook using Apple’s free iBooks Author software. No technology is required from participants during the session.
