What is Book Launch?

Book Launch, an exciting program through The Office of Distance Education and eLearning (ODEE), allows undergraduate and graduate students, professors, and faculty at The Ohio State University the opportunity to write, design, and create their own interactive, multi-touch digital books using the iBooks Author application, as well as other eBook publishing tools. Readers may then access these books through their personal laptops, iPads, and smartphones in order to create a convenient, portable environment for reading. However, the convenience of such books remain only a fragment of the attraction for creating these books, which supply interactive features for the reader that would not be possible for printed books as well as promote creative choices for displaying diagrams, charts, illustrations, widgets, and more.
