Nine graduate students in an Advanced Technology for Teachers course at Georgia College have published their own e-textbook, Using Technology in Education, through Apple’s iBookstore. The free, downloadable textbook is available on the iPad via iBooks.
“It’s a cool, well-designed e-book,” said Chris Greer, associate professor of instructional technology in the John H. Lounsbury College of Education, in a statement from the college. “We’re one of the first classes in the country to publish our own digital textbook with the Apple store. After we submitted it, no revisions were needed. The textbook passed Apple’s screening process, which speaks to the quality of the students’ work.”
