Event Details

5:30-6pm: Refreshments & networking
6-7pm: Guest speaker, Nicole Hennig

iBooks Author is a free ebook authoring tool by Apple that runs on the Mac platform. It enables easy creation of interactive ebooks that can be sold or offered for free through Apple's iBooks store. It also allows for exporting non-interactive PDF versions that can be sold anywhere. The interactive ebooks will run on iPads and can include embedded multimedia, such as slide shows, movies, quizzes, 3D images, embedded math formulas, and more.

In this informal talk, Nicole Hennig will walk us through examples of some titles created with this tool, show the interface and how it works, and discuss why this is of interest to those looking to create interactive books.

Nicole Hennig's expertise includes user experience studies, mobile web, mobile apps and the user experience of e-reading. Nicole is the co-author of the popular web site, Apps for Academics and teaches the online course Apps4LibrariansRead more about Nicole.
