iBooks Textbooks

A type of digital textbook for the Apple iPad that delivers dynamic, interactive content.  More than simply a traditional textbook in digital format, iBooks Textbooks can include a variety of rich multimedia content, including interactive graphics, multi-touch diagrams and 3-D objects, movies, photo galleries, Keynote animations and more.  iBooks Textbooks also enable students to create, view and organize their own notes and highlights with simple swipes and clicks.

iBooks Textbooks are created with the iBooks Author free app and can be purchased and downloaded through the iBookstore.  Part of Apple's ambitious education initiative, iBooks Textbooks are also designed to complement the iTunes U app that can be used by teachers to stream lectures and more effectively interact with their students outside of the classroom.
