IBooks Author icon.jpg The current site provides an extensive online educational resource available to all with an internet connection. The development of mobile eReaders and iPad format now also allows the offline availability of educational materials. Until now I have delayed publishing content in an eBook format, but the recent availability of "iBook Textbooks" and the new "iBooks Author" software allows incorporation of many excellent educational tools (galleries, labels, animations and quizzes). I am not initially submitting to the new "Textbook" section as these initial releases are not in this structured format and textbooks option is not currently available to all countries.

The first releases will be of historic material to develop my own skills in the use of the software. These will be followed up by a series of releases supporting undergraduate education and focussing on specific embryology topics. I am still contemplating how best to present this material to K-12 student level.

AvailableBook.png This icon will link directly to the eBook in the Australian iBookstore, though all these books are available worldwide. If you are accessing from another country you should be redirected to your local store.

Consistent with education being free to all, I will be releasing along with collaborators, a series of embryology resources that will be available free for educational purposes through the iTunes bookstore. I hope you enjoy learning form these materials, a good paper textbook though will still never run out of battery!

While the iBook format will play on all Apple products (desktop, iPad, iPhone) it is not compatible with PC or Kindle readers as it implements its own proprietary version of ePub3. I do apologise to those platform users.

Having said that, I can export these books as PDF versions, these versions will not have the interactivity, galleries or movies and will display only a static image where these appear. Though all text is displayed within the PDF document.

PDF documents will open on any platform and with a variety of software including browsers, Apple preview, Adobe Acrobat Reader and Adobe Digital Editions.

  • iTunes link | iBook Store
  • Description - Imagine the excitement of seeing this incredible early period of human development for the first time. Now consider that much of our initial understanding of human development is based upon study of historic embryo collections. You can now look at these historic images of the first 8 weeks after fertilisation and explore for yourself the changes that occur in human development during this key period. This current book is designed as an atlas of the Carnegie embryo stages with some brief notes and additional information covering the first 8 weeks of development. These images are from from the beginning of last century and are one of the earliest documented series of human embryos collected for basic research and medical education on development. I hope you enjoy learning about the amazing early events that begin to make and shape us. This is the second book in a series of educational releases from UNSW Embryology.
