I signed upnot knowing a thing about book apps, and in a months time I am usingthem at work and collaborating with a library colleague to create a bookapp of our own for use in story times. The topic is timely, relevant andfun! I couldnt ask for more.- Susan Hansen, Branch Manager, West Hartford Public Library,Hartford, CT Wonderful. Just a wonderful introduction to Books as iPads in terms of what is currently available and examples of the ideas that are moving this format along as we span the paper/electronic options. Nicole is very knowledgeable and her style of instruction is approachable and fun. - Lydia Patrick, Technology Division Manager for Loudoun County Public Library, Reston, VirginiaThis was a great class, so easy to navigate and take on my own time frame butwith deadlines so I didnt procrastinate forever. The articles were spot on and wellchosen. Including a hands on component as well as a create ideas activity whichmade it a very useful and productive class that I can take back and share with myfellow librarians and administrators.- Trish Hull, Manager, Magna Library at Salt Lake County Library Services,Magna, UT
