First Open University iBook now in StorePeter Scott, Tuesday 27 March 2012
Today the book has been featured by Apple in the "new and notable" section of the UK iTunes book store and has been highlighted in a new iTunes U course release worldwide.
The Moon Rocks iBook was produced with Apple's iBook Author software from an ePub created by Andy Tindle and and Simon Kelley from the OU Centre for Earth, Planetary, Space & Astronomical Research. The course "Moons: an introduction" which uses the new format book is also 'featured' in iTunes U today. Nice one!
'Moon Rocks' contains a number of highly interactive elements, including NASA images and movies, plus panoramas, quizzes, and elements from our celebrated 'Virtual Microscope'. This release is the result of extensive work between the CEPSAR authors; the Learning and Teaching Solutions team; and our own new media folks in the Knowledge Media Institute.
Well done, all!
