Apple made several important announcements today at its educational event in New York, one of which was to announce the iBooks 2 for iPad app, featuring iBooks textbooks, which Apple says is an entirely new kind of textbook thatâ€™s dynamic, engaging and truly interactive. iBooks textbooks are full-screen, beautifully illustrated textbooks with interactive animations, diagrams, photos, videos, unrivaled navigation, and much more.
iBooks textbooks can be kept up to date, wonâ€™t take up room in your backpack, and youâ€™ll never have to return them either. Leading educational services companies such as Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, McGraw-Hill and Pearson will deliver educational titles on the iBookstore, with most priced at $14.99 or less, and with the new iBooks Author, a free authoring tool also available from today, anyone with a Mac can create stunning iBooks textbooks.
