Last February I wrote an article for MacLearning entitled, "The Coming eTextbook Revolution in Higher Education." Thanks to David Wicks' encouragement, I began to build upon that article and persue the questions it raised. That led to a few presentations and then to an iBook. I am thereby endebited to MacLearning. The iBook is in the iBookstore here.
Because this book is about ePublishing in higher education and focuses on the eTextbook as an exemplar, I decided to use iBooks Author to test and illustrate the possibilities that I was writing about. Thus, this is an iPad-only iBook.
Update 11/25/2012: I was invited by the editor of Teleread to write an article about the book, especially about the decision to use the iPad-only iBook format. You can read that article and comments here.
