MacVoicesTV #1296: Michael E. Cohen Takes Control of iBooks Author
Michael E. Cohen is uniquely qualified to be the author of the new Take Control of iBooks Author. He relates his part in producing some of the very first ebooks way back in the 1990′s, as well as the multimedia CD-ROMS of the day, and explains why those efforts were not as successful as some would have liked. iBooks Author puts an amazing amount of creative power in anyone’s hands; Michael talks about why it is so important that the first iteration of the product is geared toward teachers, but can be adapted by anyone, what kind of content it excels at, and more. Approachability, highlights and some of the background associated with publishing a book published with iBooks Author are also covered.
