iBooks 2, iBooks Author and iTunes U Out at Apple’s Education Event

The recent education event, hosted by Apple witnessed the introduction of the all new iBooks 2, as reported earlier. The iBooks 2 is a new venture that is set to provide a better way of learning for the students. This all new digital learning is set to defeat the old, lame textbooks, or in other words, provide an alternate way of learning.


iBooks 2 is the second version of the iBooks software and with iTunes in hand, users can easily download the latest digital books from iTunes and move them to their iPad. Apple describes it as, browse your library on a beautiful bookshelf, tap a book to open it, flip through pages with a swipe or a tap, and bookmark or add notes to your favorite passages.

Apple has joined hands with Pearson PLC, McGraw-Hill Cos Inc. and Houghton Mifflin to provide digital eBooks that can be run in iPads. With most of the guys out there owing an iPad, digital eBooks is now set to prove to be a success in the technology world we live in.

With multi gesture touches, full screen viewing, viewing of 3D images, rotating them, and learning with videos rather than the old static pictures, learning with this all new iBooks 2 in iPad becomes a real fun. The starting price of a high school textbook is at $14.99

On the other hand, most of the people out there consider buying an iPad for this new feature. Why must one buy a $500 iPad to learn? While there  is an availability of $15 textbooks, why would one like to purchase a $500 iPad to learn? Without doubt, this new venture is set to increase the profit of the tech giant, Apple. What’s your thought? Will this new introduction prove to be feasible for the students?

Also, this new education event witnessed the introduction of the iBooks Author and iTunes U. While the iBooks Author allows you to create your own digital, visually interesting eBooks, iTunes U is set to provide you access to the giant database filled with free university books for the students.
