Frequently Asked Questions

BookWidgets is the easiest way to create exercises for iPads, Chromebooks, Android tablets and PCs. These exercises (or “widgets” as we often call them) can be sent to students directly using the free “BookWidgets for iPad” app, can be used online or can also be embedded as custom HTML5 widgets in iBooks Author multi-touch books.

Generating your own widgets is a simple 3-step process:
  1. Choose a widget type from a list
  2. Fill in your data in a wizard (e.g. questions and answers for a quiz)
  3. Share with your students (or drag & drop the resulting .wdgt onto your iBooks Author project)

And that’s it! Follow our personalized tour to get more details and examples of what you can do with BookWidgets.
