I have been meaning to post about Book Creator for Chrome for a while now and make a couple of ‘how to’ videos but Book Creator themselves have beaten me to it which is a good thing.
Book Creator for Chrome is available on any device as long as it has the Chrome web browser installed.
The first 7min video reprises how to use Book Creator for Chrome as a teacher after making a teacher account. Being in Chrome it is nice how you can search for on line images as well as use your own to illustrate your book and with one click publishing it is very easy to work with.
Importantly at the moment when learners go to register as a student it asks for them to register with their Google Account. I queried this and was told that other options are in the pipeline.
Joining as a student is really handy because then they can then join the teacher’s library automatically via an invite code and their names automatically aligned with their books for easy recognition, feedback and possible publication on line.
The teacher makes a library for collaboration by adding a library and then clicking on the three dots on the right hand side of the shared library.
This then generates an invite code that is shared with students so they can join to teachers library. This needs to be ready for students as they sign up
This second video is how to import books from your Google Drive or iPad into Book Creator for Chrome so they can be further worked on and edited before publication.
Publishing books via the iPad app and Chrome is easy- I would love to see and share what you have created.
Please link in the comments when you publish a book so we can see what others have created.
