Techmas 2014: Saving web pages as iBooks using dotEPUB

We have talked about the power of reading documents in iBooks before.  The ability to highlight text, write and share notes, define key words, and have the text read to you are three tools that can help students of all ages.  Now, through the magic of a bookmarklet called dotEPUB, the students can save any text based webpage as an iBook.  Not only does this give them access to the powerful tools inside of iBooks, but it also gives them a local copy that they can access later without being connected to the internet!  While it does require a minor one-time setup, dotEPUB provides the potential to be a game changer with how students interact with their reading.  In this tutorial, I will share with you how to set up and use dotEPUB as well as review the main features of  iBooks.   I want to give a special shout out to James Gates for sharing this awesome tool with us!
