dotEPUB — Download any webpage as an e-Book
I am about to scream. I love my iPad and my iPad (hopefully iPad2 within the next hour) loves me too…but today, the love has grown. A fellow colleague, Sam Parisi shared with me today the most unbelievable site: dotepub.com. dotepub allows you to turn any webpage into an .ePub on the iPad!
I know…let me repeat this: dotepub allows you to turn any webpage into an .ePub on the iPad! Now, if I am student who doesn’t have internet access at home I can simply create an ePub of a website I need to read and then…BOOM, I have access at home. This really works well for anyone, but great implications in the classroom and beyond.
I really like the fact that we are able to promote literacy even through a webpage. The Common Core are coming at the rate of speed. We need to start creating more examples of learning like this! Students having a digital library of ALL types reading material is just awesome. We have to THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOOK (website to follow soon
Students can open the ePub in the iBooks and…
- Tap and highlight any word and get the word defined for you instantly
- Highligh words and phrases in different colors
- Maybe highlight symbolism in pink
- Highlight compound sentences in blue
- You can also tap on any word and or phrase and create sticky note.
And people don’t understand the power of mobile! Elation…after a long hard night, this was just the pick me up I needed. Oh, and did I mention this is all FREE!
