The iPad can provide students with massive amounts of viewing, reading and listening texts so it's a great tool for language learning. Finding the perfect content or exercises, however, can be a challenge. With iBooks Author, teachers can create interactive, multimedia content tailor-made for their students' learning needs.
iBooks Author is a FREE app for Mac or iPad and once a book is created, students need only to connect once to the Internet to download it; after that, the iBook is stored on their iPad and can be accessed at any time.
