iBooks 2 iPad Textbook From Apple

Apple Announces iBooks 2: a Textbook Experience For Your iPad

Apple's Phil Schiller announced iBooks 2 this morning in NYC's Guggenheim Museum. The app will put textbooks in the hands of students without all the extra weight. With over "20,000 education and learning applications built specifically for the iPad," Apple wants to take learning to the next level with interactive textbooks that will engage students with interactive maps, 3D models, videos, glossary terms embedded right into the text, and Q&A sections at the end of each chapter. Taking notes also gets a 1-UP since all the highlights and notes you take in an iBooks 2 textbook get turned into virtual flash cards that you can study with right on your iPad.

In addition to interactive textbooks, high school textbooks from McGraw-Hill, Pearson, and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt are also available in the App Store today, all priced at $15 or less, alongside four new publications from DK Publishing and author E.O. Wilson.
