I've been playing with new iBA update with previews to iPhone. Anyone seen any guides for iBA-generated iBooks for iPhone. Especially templates, widgets and multi-media?

A great tool to integrate our collaborative Google docs and Hangout
Here's how I used Versal (a free LMS) to flip a portion of my Library of Congress-funded summer teachers' workshop.

I'm offering an iBooks Author training session for faculty at the University of Portland. Here's two videos that demonstrate interactivity of iBA widgets and how easy it is to input content into your iBook.

I’m pleased to be presenting at the Devsigner Conference in Portland Ore June 27-28. 
How to design engaging learning experiences that motivate students, provoke their reflections and monitor their progress as learners.

Finding online documents can a challenge, so I put together a 12-min video of three search strategies that I find effective - locating curated content, using the native LOC search tools and using a search operator. [site:loc.gov]

eBook creation on a Chromebook?

I’ve done many iBook projects using iBooks Author with distribution via iTunes. I have a school client that is Chromebook-based who would like to publish eBooks.

Anyone know what kind of eBook creating options there are for designing on a Chromebook? 
What devices can view the resulting eBooks? 
How are they distributed? 
Are they text only or can they be more media rich?

I just heard about Atavist and took if for a quick test. It looks like a great web-based creation tool that can output to all the major ebook providers. As well as provide elegant content on the web. Anyone else have any experience with it?
