How I Use It
I have used Book Creator to create collaborative books with both students and adults alike. Across the board, this is a highly engaging and user-friendly platform to create amazing looking books for folks to share on the world stage. A long time ago, Book Creator was very limited in features and honestly "looked" very simplistic and basic. The only other real option was to use Apple's book authoring software, which made incredible looking books, but was AWFUL user experience to get a book published. Book Creator has come so far! From embedding all kinds of content, to recording audio/video, to a simple publishing feature, books can be created in a snap and look fantastic.
My Take
Book Creator is top notch! The only thing I would love to see added in the collaborative mode is to be able to see ALL changes made by particular students...this way, I could see precisely what each student added.
