    In my formative school years, there were always concerns of what toll hefty textbooks and toting them around in backpacks would be.  Luckily, The students of the 21st century may  not have to share in that burden with Apple's announcement that it would begin offering digital  textbooks on their iPad via its iBooks 2 app.

    Apple is setting its sights on the textbook industry - Textbooks for iPad, which became available by way of a new textbook category in iBooks 2, which requires iOS 5 and is currently available as an update to the original iBooks app, provide students with a modern, interactive replacement for conventional printed textbooks. They support multi-touch gestures and also feature dictionary look-up integration and annotation. Students can highlight text, take notes and even create virtual note cards to reference later while studying.

    The books, which currently focus on high school-level subjects but will later expand to cover the entire K-12 curriculum, can cost up to $14.99, and Apple is working with publishing companies such as Pearson, McGraw Hill, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and DK Publishing to make it happen.

    Students can enhance their mobility with accessories such as; stylus & pens, micro SD memory cards, batteries, docking stations, Bluetooth headsets, data cables and glider gloves all specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich

    To create interactive textbooks and other digital books for the iPad, Apple has also introduced iBooks Author. The Mac application provides robust tools that let anyone build and publish interactive digital books for Apple’s iBooks store. It has the same look and feel as Apple’s iWork apps, and includes features like gallery support, 3D animation, video and interactive image support and more. Users can even insert custom Javascript or HTML5 code into eBooks using iBooks AuthorPaired with the fact that multiple universities have launched test programs for distributing iPads to students and this looks to be a recipe for success. And, when the iPad3 is released later this year, its predecessor will be that much more affordable and accessible to students.

    Now we just have to worry about early-onset carpal tunnel and “texting thumb” syndromes. But even there, with the number of hands free technologies out there, students could easily address those issues as well with the simple purchase of a few key accessories. God bless innovation!
