Creating iBooks or eBook Apps

The iPad is a great tool for students to create and publish their own books. Following up from the previous post on Creating your own iBook, there are now a number of Apps that can be used on the iPad to create your own iBook or eBook App.

  • Book Creator
  • Creative Book Builder
  • Demi Book Composer (free)
  • Ebook creator
  • Ebook magic


A great summary of the above Apps can be found at Technology Bits Bytes & Nibbles.

A comparison of which one to use can be found at : The Amazing iPad.

One schools collaborative iBook using Pages App as well as Drawing Pad and Whiteboard Lite - iPads at Burley.

A useful presentation at Author Stream on How to Create an Ebook. For some detailed instructions on using Creative Book Builder start from slide 26.

For a quick ebook of any website or blog use dotEPUB. You can install a bookmarklet on your iPad which will automatically convert the webpage you are viewing to an ebook. I quickly and easily converted pages from this blog into an ebook via dotEPUB's bookmarklet (see pic above).
