In this podcast from the road, Wesley Fryer discusses recent and current eBook projects using the iPad app “Book Creator” by Red Jumper in his STEM classroom and in the library of his elementary school in Yukon, Oklahoma. The five different publishing workflow options he explores in detail are: 1 – Open in iBooks locally, 2- Save to Cloud Storage like DropBox or Google Drive, 3- Email to Posthaven, 4- Export to Video and Publish to YouTube, and 5- Export to PDF and print-on-demand (a hard copy) with Lulu.com. He also discusses workflow options in which the classroom teacher posts eBook videos to YouTube after students transfer them to the teacher’s iOS device using the free app InstaShare, and the option of directly posting to YouTube from student iPads using the free app YouTube Capture.
