Anyone have experience with using Apple Pages to create ePub 3 iBook? Want to use more images and video than text. I'm thinking of adapting some of my current iBook content for viewing on iPhone 6 / 6+  (I'm tired of waiting for Apple to make iBA work with iPhone display.)

In this 18 min podcast I share idea for fusing technology into instructional design. You think about the instructional goals that you want to achieve, and then from there, you say, okay, so what kind of tools are out there. The big question is what's the least amount of technology you could use to get the job done?
