In this course, we'll be exploring the key fetaures and techniques you can use to create great looking, highly engaging, interactive content for students with iPads. We'll begin by discussing how to get your projects started the right way with templates. Then, we'll look at how to work with each component of a project, including the ins and outs of working with texts and styles. I'll show how to place images and improve their appearance, plus how to add media, like audio and video.
