- [Chris] Hi, my name is Chris Mattia and welcome to iBooks Author Basics. In this course, we'll cover all the basics of using iBooks Author to create beautiful and engaging iBooks. We'll begin by using one of the templates that ships with iBooks Author. Then, we'll go over all the key interface elements to get you comfortable working in the application. We'll then dive into creating chapters, sections, and pages, adding text and images to each. I'll show you the basics of adding widgets to your book when we add a keynote presentation that your readers can interact with.
We'll wrap up with sharing a free copy of our book with our students, co-workers, or family via DropBox. We have a lot to cover, so let's get started with iBooks Author Basics.
