In this course, author and educator Chris Mattia demonstrates how to use the Apple iBooks Author application to create and publish your own ebook, without extensive design or publishing experience.
Follow along with Chris as he assembles, refines, and publishes a dynamic and engaging ebook for distribution on the iPad using the iBooks app. The course demonstrates the process of adding all of the components of a dynamic ebook, 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 ebook. The course wraps up with a review of the iBookstore publishing process.
We're still working on our custom photo collage layout for our Explore California Travel Guide. The next step is to define the explorer's name as placeholder text and make sure that it's editable in future pages. To do this, simply click on the text box for the Explorer's Name and go up to the Format menu and go down to Advanced. Then select Enable Placeholder Text Authoring. We then need to go to the Inspector and go to the Layout tab and check the box for Editable on pages using this layout.
We can then close the layout window. Our text is now fully set up. You'll notice that we do have some more text down here at the bottom: the Photos from the CHAPTER Tour and the page number. And we'll address those in the next movie.
