Voluntary Meeting
April 28, 3:30-4:30
Bernardo School, Room 46

Gerald Lake will be sharing a simple process for creating
 and sharing both student and teacher eBooks, as well 
as demo Strip Designer, and PicMix.


Steps for creating an eBook
  1. Sigl - 
    1. changes pasted text into an eBook
      1. text pasted from the web can be goofy because of special characters
    2. Can add chapter breaks
  2. Calibre - application runs - acts as a server for the ePub books
    1. drag the ePub doc into Calibr and BAM
    2. can add meta data
  3. Student opens Stanza app - it looks for the server - downloads the book(s) to the iPod
Can be used to share handouts w/ students, student created books, etc.

Strip Designer
  • Like ComicLife
  • More sophisticated than ComicTouch
  • allows you to have two photos layered on ipod screen at once
  • can "erase" (make transparent) part of top photo to create different effects
    • example - placing a student in a picture of some place or thing
