With iBooks author, you are in control of exactly what information your students see. And don’t be afraid, beautiful iBooks can be created quickly and easily with the help of a vast array of open source sites like universities and fellow teachers.

How to be a Video Ninja
Presentation Site
Video is a powerful resource in the classroom. Especially in the hands of a skilled teacher. It can engage students in the conversation, and give them a different prospective on a topic that can only be topped by being there first hand.

I would like to share some tricks about collecting video, viewing them in the classroom, and storage and distribution. There are video resources all around us, from Youtube to DVDs. I’ll show you how to download a video from Youtube, convert different formats of video to fit your needs, and pull that perfect segment from your favorite DVD. I call these skills "Ninja" skills. It is a secret practice shared by a few teachers, and handed down for the betterment of classrooms. I will share as many as time permits, so you too can be a Video Ninja!
