Using Ourboox in the Classroom

By
For the past five years, I’ve taught an academic course in sixties music at Tel Aviv University. All my lectures (and I mean all of them) are on Ourboox. I show the books on the screen and the students can follow them anywhere. Have a look at one of them:  http://www.ourboox.com/books/what-made-the-beatles-the-beatles/
In the book I can incorporate text (with hyperlinks), videos, embed quizzes (Which Beatle do you like best? Google forms), padlets (so the students can voice their opinions) and much more. Check this e-book out for some of the other things you can do. http://www.ourboox.com/books/ourboox-for-teachers-and-teaching-3/.
Of course, it’s even better when the students start creating their own e-books on our platform. In addition to writing skills, they gain expertise in embedding material from other websites, they learn to be authors, and they can take pride in their individuality and their achievements. Try it out tomorrow and let me know! mel@ourboox.com

About Mel Rosenberg

Mel Rosenberg couldn't make a living writing and giving away children’s books so to make ends meet he took on odd jobs as a professor of microbiology, inventor, jazz musician, singer and French toast cook. More recently he has teamed with Ran Shternin (and a whole bunch of wonderful volunteers) to create ourboox.com, an international community of writers and illustrators who make amazing books together using a unique platform.
