RICHMOND, Va., Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SoftChalk, LLC, a leading developer of eLearning content authoring platforms, announced today a new product solution, SoftChalk eBook Builder, will give educators the ability to create their own interactive eBooks, viewable on Apple iPads. Coming summer 2014, SoftChalk's eBook Builder will enable SoftChalk Cloud and Create users to save their SoftChalk content in EPUB 3 format.
"What is ground-breaking about SoftChalk's eBook Builder is that it gives educators the ability to create their own eBook content. Their content doesn't have to be just static text and images. SoftChalk will enable educators to create truly interactive eBooks that include pop-up annotations, images, video, and interactives such as dragNdrop matching, flashcards, and other SoftChalk supported activities," said Sue Evans, CEO of SoftChalk, LLC. Using SoftChalk's eBook Builder, educators will be able to quickly and easily create their own interactive eBooks using SoftChalk's authoring products.
"The advantage of an eBook over standard web-based content is that students can save the eBook directly onto their iPad and access the content even without a wireless Internet connection," said Evans.
"Students will have the ability to download engaging, interactive eBook content on their iPads for later access, creating a high quality mobile learning experience," said Evans. Lessons published with SoftChalk's eBook Builder will support many of the features currently available to SoftChalk Cloud and Create users, in addition to the standard features offered through the iBook app, such as bookmarking, text highlighting, note-taking, and built-in dictionary.
The initial release of SoftChalk eBook Builder will generate content that works with Apple's iBooks app, for use on an iPad. Following this initial release for iPad, SoftChalk plans to expand its eBook Builder functionality to be compatible on other devices and e-reader applications.
"We are very excited to announce this game-changing interactive, eBook building feature for educators," stated Evans. "As educational technology evolves, we strive to continue to develop and deliver cutting-edge eLearning solutions that allow educators to engage their students and improve student learning."
