Apple introduced iBooks 2 for the iPad during a special education media event in New York City. The new version of iBooks adds support for interactive textbooks — a new feature plans to change how students learn.

iBooks 2 offers thumbnail views for textbook content, the ability to zoom in on high resolution images, intro movies, 3D model viewing, support for swiping to highlight text in textbooks, and support for viewing glossary terms without leaving the current page.

The app is required for Apple’s new textbooks created with iBooks Author, and to download textbooks from the iBookstore.

iBooks 2 is free and is available from iOS App Store. Textbooks are available through the iBookstore are priced at up to US$14.99. iBooks Author is available free from Mac App Store.
