Recently , we have discussed about “Ultrabooks” in our blog. The “Ultrabooks” to be launced by Intel and now here here is “iBook 2” by Apple. ๐Ÿ™‚ In this rising trends of gadgets and software we can say that each and every manufacturer, is in the mood of perfect competition to beat it’s opponent and to prove in the competition market that we are the best in bringing latest technology at the doorsteps of the customers. each of them is trying to prove “we are not less good than any other brand”. Well if I have to say it in my local language I would say itย  in this way “Hum bhi kissi se kam nahi”!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Apple , a well established brand which has been in the global market since the last two decades and still is ruling the global market, has recently announced its “iBooks 2” in New York on Thursday. This iBook 2 is a textbook software program that allows instructors to program interactive teaching media for the iPad. It gives authors access to easy-to-use tools on the computer to create multimedia content for the iPad.

We all must be aware of the e-learning process going on now-a-days. As some advertisements say “It is easy for students to learn things when they experience the things practically”. This is the main aim of e-learning process now-a-days. So, not only schools , but also many Universities are accepting and welcoming this e-learn process with open arms. Now , lets analyze , what is this iBook2 and how will it revolutionize the teaching process….?

Books created for iBooks 2 enable authors to create content for the students , provide MCQ(multiple choice questions) with the immediate feedback within the text. It will also be assisting instructors to make notes and highlight texts. Besides , it will also be providing embedded graphics and 3D animations, full-motion movies and much more!!! In addition to this this, authors will also be able to customize their books with HTML5 or JavaScript. The main advantage of this application software would be that it would be providing line previews so that the author can see the final result before publishing.ย  So, all these add more spice to the boring textbooks as the instructors can add audio, video and various documents for presentations or PDFs, by the iTunes U app. Now, this iTunes U app will allow materials to add in the textbooks which would shape it beyond the usual , boring college textbooks.

So , good news for the students….no more textbooks now!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s the era ofย  iBooks 2 now.

Hence, we can say that where technology is so fast now, scope is also being provided to the students within their schools, colleges and Universities.

Its just Technology! Technology! and……..Technology! now-a-days…. ๐Ÿ™‚
