At Apple’s education-based media event held earlier today, the company introduced iBooks 2 with interactive textbooks. To create these new interactive books, Apple has rolled out a free creation tool called iBooks Author.

Now anyone can create stunning iBooks textbooks, cookbooks, history books, picture books, and more for iPad. All you need is an idea and a Mac. Start with one of the Apple-designed templates that feature a wide variety of page layouts. Add your own text and images with drag-and-drop ease. Use Multi-Touch widgets to include interactive photo galleries, movies, Keynote presentations, 3D objects, and more. Preview your book on your iPad at any time. Then submit your finished work to the iBookstore with a few simple steps. And before you know it, you’re a published author.

The application has a number of pre canned templates you can choose from and customize as you go with images, videos, multi-touch widgets and Keynote presentations. You can then preview your work on an iPad and then submit your work to the iBook store for sale or for free.

You can get the download from the Mac App Store for free.
