A Quick Video Demonstration Of The iBooks Author App

Apple just recently released a new publishing app called iBooks Author. It's a free app available on the Mac App store, and it lets you create interactive multi-touch books that you can view on the iPad. You can add videos, interactive images, 3D objects and a bunch of other things. And once you're done, you can publish your book for distribution in the iBookstore. Here's a video from one of my favorite YouTube channels - mattsmacintosh - that takes a quick look at iBooks Author. As an educator, I am pretty excited about this app and its potential to change the education industry.
