Create beautiful, multimedia digital books with Book Creator. It would be best to read the short Getting Started with Book Creator, which will stay in your library. Next, look at the Features tab from the top menu to see all you can do with Book Creator; a few of these are summarized in this review. Then, you can go to the Resources tab from the top menu, where each grade level has a video, and you'll find example books created by students. Under Resources, you can also search by subject to find suggested ideas and books designed for a specific subject. You can also choose Remixable Books to get you and your class started. When finished, publish and share your book using the site's web-based reader for access on any device. A unique, new feature is that you can see how many times your book has been read and where. The free plan offers one activity library with up to 40 books storage. BookCreator presents a variety of levels for technology use depending on teacher requirements for the project or even student ability; it allows for adding narration, videos, text, using your webcam, and adding links to help explain the artwork. When creating your book, click on the big + sign, and in the upper right corner, the More tab, then WOW! one of the "mores" are apps you can add like Bitmoji, Giphy, Canva, your Google Drive (you can add Slides, Docs, Sheets, and creations from other apps), these all come with the free account. There are other apps, but you must have a premium account. You can use Book Creator on iPads, Macs, Android devices, PCs, and on these browsers: Safari, Microsoft Edge, and Chrome. Teachers need to provide an email to create an account. However, students do not need emails to make their books. Once you're ready, follow the site's prompts to add video, text, images, audio, and more to your book.
