Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

I'll focus on two objectives in this 30-minute Snapshot session. First, I'll provide a quick overview of how the free trial version of Book Creator platform works. My second objective will be to introduce and explore the unique features of Book Creator that are likely to be the most useful for educators. Studies show that students do their best work when there is an authentic audience. Book Creator allows students to have a real audience and has many other useful and time-saving methods for embedding material.
