Session Abstract In this session, the presenters will introduce the audience to the "ibooks author" app and demonstrate the fundamental steps required to build a simple yet feature-rich textbook. Elements discussed or demonstrated will include: choice of template; critical formatting steps; how to import text, figures and other objects; and how to create interactive "widgets". After building a simple book "in real time", the presenters will present their own textbook, entitled "Understanding Anesthesia: A Learner's Guide", which was created using the iBooks author app.
