The Thursday, April 26th meeting of the Learning Technology group featured eBooks as the topic. A guest speaker from McGraw-Hill, Nicolle Wilson, presented McGraw-Hill's Connect and Create platform and Blackboard connection, and we also talked about the iBooks platform on Apple's iPad and the iBooks Author textbook authoring tool from Apple. The following links include information that was discussed at the meeting, and more.
