Flipbooks

According to Paperturn, flipbook (flip-book) is “an interactive, HTML5 online publication that has the look and feel of a real, page-turning publication (complete with page-turning sound effects, page shadows and more)”. This form of online presentation is very popular amongst hospitality, housing or photography businesses showcasing and marketing their services. 

Can flip-books be used in education? 

Easily accessible (smartphone, tablet, etc.) and visually more appealing and engaging, flip-books can be used at any subject as, for example, digital portfolio with evidence of students’ work  or a collection of course/lesson materials for a flipped classroom. I use  FREE flip-books creators mainly to  showcase/display portfolios of students’ work or to distribute informative booklets. Paid versions offer a number of frills such as interactivity, sound or video upload which makes them an excellent tool for interactive presentations.
