Inspired by a visit from the exotic animals of Tropical Inc (, Year 8 pupils from King Henry VIII School in Abergavenny, Wales, recorded their experiences in their own iBooks.

The video tutorials give step-by-step guides to iBooks Author and explain how pupils created their multi-touch books for the iPad. Teachers can use these videos, available on King Henry VIII's profile page, to help their pupils create similar interactive resources.

The five videos cover creating study cards, video widgets, interactive quizzes, adding interactive images and image galleries.
