In this course, author and educator Chris Mattia demonstrates how to use the Apple iBooks Author application to create and publish your own iBook, without extensive design or publishing experience.
Follow along with Chris as he assembles, refines, and publishes a dynamic and engaging iBook for distribution on the iPad using the iBooks app. The course demonstrates the process of adding all of the components of a dynamic iBook, including engaging text, images, audio, video, 3D models, and dynamic web content. It also shows how to customize the iBooks Author interface and leverage built-in templates to produce a beautifully designed and polished iBook. The course wraps up with a review of the iBookstore publishing process.
The last thing you always want to do to your chart before you add it directly into the flow of your document is to go ahead and add the metadata to this chart. So go ahead and click one time on your chart to select it and then click on the Widget Inspector, and let's add a Title and a Caption. But we'll go ahead and leave the Background off, so our chart has a nice bright white feel to it. We've already seen this before. So we'll go ahead and select the label, and for the type of label, we're going to choose a Figure. We'll then go ahead and title the figure by clicking inside of the text at the top, selecting it, and then go ahead and add in our Figure label.
We'll then go ahead and add a description down at the bottom: The best months to get the most fresh powder on our mountain is from December until March. We'll make a little minor adjustment to our legend, and there, everything is looking great for our chart. Now you know all the basics that it takes to be able to add a great dynamic chart and display data that really tells the story that needs to be conveyed.
