If we look back and analyze the use of technology in education, eBook is the first thing that pops up in my mind with respect to innovation and bringing technology to make education accessible, feasible for everyone.
With rise in the use and likeability of eBooks, people started creating books of their own for multiple purposes.
Now the thing is the tools we use for bookmaking. There are many apps and tools available which allow you to create ebooks across multiple platforms but this tool “Book Creator” just redefines the way to do the same. With hands on this tool creating eBooks is so much-more easy. Not just you are being able to create the text books but you also get the option to add multimedia files like images and videos.
Distinct Features of the Tool are as Follows:
- Use panels to layout your comic books.
- Choose from the new range of comic styles. Use the preset titles or customize your own.
- Add drop shadow, thought bubbles, borders and more.
- Choose from the comic-style backgrounds. You can still use all the previous backgrounds and solid colors in Book Creator.
- Add your text, images, video, music and narration and use all of your content to tell the whole story.
- Add stickers from the library and resize them.
- Share your books with friends and family in the way that suits you.
-You can also post pages from your book to Facebook and Twitter and show everyone what you're working on.
- Join other authors and submit your books to Apple’s iBooks Store or Google Play Books.
Check out this video to know how the tool works:
Users can pick images, place text, and choose background colors for assembling their books in a variety of formats, including comic strips. You can include images from your device's camera roll, and images can be resized and repositioned, text attributes can be changed, and books can have as many pages as needed. Once users are finished with a book, it can be opened in iBooks (iOS), Google Play Books (Android), or any number of other apps such as Dropbox, Evernote, and others. It can also be sent over email or saved to iTunes (iOS).
In our opinion this is an amazing easy-to-use digital bookmaking tool, this app is accessible even to kids in early elementary school grades to produce and publish their own simple books or comics with images, videos, and audio. Readers can access published books via iBooks or other online sources, or books can be printed on paper. Before creating that first book, it's helpful to read the basic tutorial. Because it makes creating books an easy step-by-step process, kids are not distracted from the app's main purpose: meaningful multimedia content. The app is available for iOS, Android and Windows.
