To end this file, here are some examples of digital books produced in educational contexts.
First, here is a regrouping multiple books created by students with the Book Creator mobile app. This grouping is available on Pinterest and is organized by the creators of the app.
Second, here is the example of the College Saint-Jean-Vianney. This college has decided to promote the creation and distribution of digital books on a large scale. To begin with, the educational advisor built a tutorial on the Book Creator app. Then the students made books in the history class. A French teacher set up a writing challenge that allowed three students to produce a book that is now available from Amazon. Finally, the establishment has an account on iTunes U and some of its books are free and available to the general public. One of them relates to Click, the college's technological implantation project.
