Book creator

This app allows users to create eBooks with multiple pages by inserting text, audio and video materials, drawings, and photos from their own photo roll. Once the book is ready, it can then be shared by email, via file sharing websites such as Dropbox, posted on the web or published.

Evaluation: Book creator is a colourful, original and easy way for students to create stories and practice language skills, and it can promote greater interaction and imaginative skills than more traditional methods. It encourages independent learning, aids differentiation, allows students to share information about themselves or their work, and is suitable for all age groups.

Cost: Free + paid options
