Apple is introducing an entirely new kind of textbooks for iPads. The need of new and modern educational tools led to the idea of a different sort of textbook – one created by publishers using a new authoring tool from Apple. These textbooks will soon replace the traditional ones, consequently eliminating all their potential faults: deterioration, heavy backpacks, limited number of copies, etc. The iBook textbooks are perfect for today’s students, who are totally drawn by technology.
