Kotobee for Developing Interactive E-books

As a teacher, I find Kotobee Author as a very useful tool in developing learning materials that capitalize on e-learning as its format and way of delivery. With this tool, I have unlimited opportunities to engage my students in meaningful, engaging, and interesting way to learn stuff. Its special features such as photo galleries, integrated animations and videos, and interactive quizzes with real-time feedback are a sure hit among the learners. Add on the list the myriad of widgets that can be used in incorporating gamification in the classroom or in online distance learning. I cannot ask for more. It's a time-saving, all-in authoring tool for teachers like me! More power, Kotobee!

Pros

Kotobee Author has all the tools one needs in making an interactive e-book. I love the fact that its output can take several formats: an embeddable tool in various LMS platforms, a separate mobile application, or as an e-pub material. Further, I find its features very engaging. For example, third-party elements can be integrated in the e-book such as Hot Potatoes, Eclipse Crossword, and Word Search Puzzle Maker. And with the aid of basic coding, one can facilitate unlimited materials using HTML 5 Package. Finally, the tool gets updated more often than not, which I find so interesting since every update comes with improved features. Oh, and I'd also like to add that its customer support is top-of-the-line, since it gives free one-on-one demos or tutorials which the user can schedule in his/her most convenient time. Awesome!

Cons

It has everything I needed in looking for a quality authoring tool, but Kotobee software can still be improved if it could allow more access to its elements and features even offline. It's not all the time that I'm connected to a WiFi, and in cases where internet connection is poor, it becomes challenging to proceed working on the platform, though one once is already connected to the net, the application tool automatically syncs and saves your work, so nothing goes to waste.

eBook Creation with Kotobee Author: Its Advantages and Drawbacks

Overall, Kotobee Author is an interactive ebook appropriate for my blended class specifically for reference use as well. It only needs to be downloaded so that means offline access is possible with fewer exceptions if you have URL links embedded.

Pros

The most impactful feature would be to import a PDF or Word document into a Kotobee Author file (there might be some tweakings needed). It makes an eBook interactive, engaging, and eye-catching to the readers. With Kotobee Author, you can add any types of images, videos, 3D models, and even graded assessments. Even when using words, you can link them to any websites, chapters, or anchors in the book. To lessen the bandwidth usage, you do not need to open a browser since it automatically pops up for your convenience. Kotobee Author has another exquisite feature that is widget integration from sites such as BookWidgets that makes students attentive and interested. You can add custom autoplay audio that aids their flow of reading.

Cons

Since Filipino students mostly use phones for online learning, the fact that I cannot separately edit its mobile app version is unbearable. I like to make custom header titles above my lessons (using a laptop) but once you view it on mobile, it becomes unorganized. Also, there are times in the customize tab, the gear keeps on loading without showing the web preview. Thus, not making the system fit for a huge image size so it needs primary optimization.

Kotobee is the ebook maker you wanted to be

I love using this software most especially for creating my customized materials for the lesson.

Kotobee Authoriffic!

Kotobee Author allowed our teacher participants in our several trainings here in the Philippines to create their own interactive ebook that is contextualized and personalized according to the needs of their learners and the learning competencies required. It also allows them to use it offline which solves the internet connection problem in some areas. Exciting future for digital authoring for teachers!

Pros

Kotobee Author brings out your innate creativity! Its easy to create your own interactive ebook that can be read online or offline. I love the flexibilities such as built-in testing and exporting in different devices/platforms, the rich content that can excite and motivate our learners and the over all experience that can definitely transform education in this 4IR.

Cons

None at all but if you can allow us to use a library of books for kids for free in our commons.deped.gov.ph site (which can be accessed here in the Phil using Free Data) that would be awesome!

Reasons for choosing Kotobee Author

Easy to use and Flexibility to different platforms.

Reasons for switching to Kotobee Author

I worked before in a training company that offers Apple products and when I left and decided to be a teacher in a Public School I found out almost 90% of our DepEd Teachers are using Windows Laptop. Because of that I compare this to that but eventually I realized them more exciting features of Kotobee Author.
