When Apple announced iBook Author, the text book arrangements with publishers for iBooks, and the changes to iTunes U, Gregg Festa from the ADP Center and AJ Kelton from the CHSS Emerging & Instructional Technology Lab, both at MSU, decided that a simple test pilot would be useful. Faculty members were identified and asked to review some text books, which were paid for, and test out the iBook Author tool. The only requirement was that they needed to produce some sort of tangible product at the end of the semester. The faculty members involved who will be at the conference session are Jerry Fails (Computer Science), Ting Ho (Music), and Gina Miele (Italian). This session will briefly detail the pilot project and each faculty member will provide input on their observations.
