Did you ever wish you (and your students, if you're an educator) could make your own iBooks? You can! iBooks can be an excellent tool for publishing your work, sharing with peers and colleagues, delivering or differentiating instruction, and publishing student work. This introduction to formatting documents for iBooks will help you learn the basics of creating or modifying documents to work well as iBooks in both fixed and flexible formats using Microsoft Word or Apple Pages on your own laptop. You'll leave with versions of your work in both fixed (PDF) and flexible (iBook) format and in possession of resources that will help you with future iBook formatting. As a preview, this syllabus is available in both PDF and iBook format, demonstrating some of the techniques that will be taught in the course. The instructor has extensive experience in writing with technology and design of K-higher ed. learning materials, and works as a formatting specialist for an eBook conversion service. Students must have a recent version of Microsoft Word for Mac (part of Microsoft Office, and available through the Campus licensing program http://darwin.uvm.edu/fmi/xsl/pricelists/software_pricelist.xsl ) and Apple Pages 09 for Mac (part of Apple iWork 09 and available through the Apple Education store here: http://store.apple.com/us_edu_13781/product/ MB942Z/A/iWork-09 ) and a computer on which to use it. Students must also have access to a device on which to view iBooks (iPhone, iPod, or iPad) for the duration of the class. Students should contact the instructor by email upon signing up to discuss the documents they wish to convert to iBook format as their Final Project. Students will be requested to bring extra material in case their formatting goes more quickly than anticipated.
