News is flying around Apple’s new tool to create multimedia textbooks for the iPad. Last week Apple announced its iBooks Author, which allows anyone to create an e-book on the ePub3 platform. Touted as the “Garage Band” app for authors, many think that this could cut e-textbook publishers out of the production loop and make ebooks more affordable for students.
What are your thoughts? How will this change the e-textbook landscape?
