New! Video Tutorials for the iPad. A Guide to the iBooks App Update – iBooks 1.2


I’ve published a number of tips and brief tutorials on using the iPad, many with images or screenshots. You can find the entire collection under iPad Tips. Starting today there’s a new way to learn about the iPad on iPad Academy – with video.

Apple recently updated the free iBooks App to version 1.2 and I decided to try my hand at creating a video explaining the new features. Over the last few days I’ve been honing my multimedia skill set, using a number of tools to create, edit and upload narrated videos. The first one, seen below, took much too long to complete, but I expect to improve the workflow in the weeks ahead. Meanwhile, I look forward to your comments on this format and the first tutorial – iBooks 1.2.

    Mant thanks to all above who took the time to comment on my first video tutorial. Your kind words and your encouragement are appreciated. I’ll share more about the tools and techniques I used to make the video after I’ve spent more time on the process. Meanwhile, I look forward to connecting with you here and elsewhere online.

    Great tip! I just organized a bunch of PDFs to make them easier to find. Glad you sent the link to the ADE list.

    Wow! Dr. Brovey, you really have unveiled some amazing new features of the iBook version just released. And, your teaching style makes this very easy to understand.
    Too, major kudos for showing us that sneaky “Search” feature on the bookshelf.

    Very well done, Dr. Brovey! I look forward to many more episodes of your work. Thanks for sharing.

    Great job Andy. Pacing is fast enough to cover the material, but not so fast so you have to go back and watch it again!

    Thanks for sharing.
