You can make videos, images and web stories using a free Adobe Creative Cloud Express (formerly Adobe Spark) education account. These can be embedded into Book Creator for amazing interactive books.

Here's an example book with embedded Adobe Creative Cloud Express content.

Book Creator Online


1. Once you've finished making your video, click on the Share button in the top toolbar. Then click Publish.

2. Configure your sharing settings, then click on the Create link button.

3. Click on the embed icon to get the iframe code, or just copy the Shareable Link using the blue copy button.

4. In Book Creator, click + then More > Embed. Paste the iframe code, then click the Confirm web link button.

5. When the link has validated, you can edit the title and then click the Add to book button.

6. You'll see that the video embeds onto the page and can be resized. In Read Mode, you can click on the video and it will play in on overlay window. 


Repeat the steps above, but for step 3, copy the link rather than the embed code

In Read Mode, you can click on the embedded Page link and it will open in a popup window, giving you the full interactive experience of the web page whilst still in your book.


The steps are exactly the same, except this time, when you embed the link, you'll see it upload as an image onto the page (much the same as any other image or photo). You can resize it as you need.

Book Creator for iPad

Using Adobe Spark Video, Adobe Spark Page or Adobe Spark Post on iPad? You can embed your creations straight into Book Creator for iPad.

Adobe Spark Video

When you're finished making your video, first upload it to Adobe's servers. Click on the Share arrow in the top right and choose Copy link to clipboard. Check the details and then click on the red Copy link to clipboard.

Next, from the My Videos screen, tap on the 3 dot menu for the video you want to share, and tap on Share, then tap on the Book Creator icon.

Adobe Spark Page

For Adobe Spark Page, the procedure is the same - publish the web page first using the Share arrow. Then from the My Pages screen use the 3 dot menu to share to Book Creator.

Adobe Spark Post

In Adobe Spark Post, publish the post first then use the 3 dot share icon (next to the social media icons at the bottom) and tap on the Book Creator icon. With each method, you should see confirmation that the item was shared to Book Creator.

Adding the content to your book

Now, in Book Creator, you'll be able to tap + and then the Shared tab to access the media that you've shared to the app.

Simply tap on the item in the menu that you want to add to the page. Adobe Spark Post images will be added straight to the page just like any other image. For Spark Video and Page creations, you'll see a verification that you want to embed the web content. Tap Done to advance.

For this embedded content, you'll be able to interact with it when you switch Book Creator to Read Mode (with the Play button), or if you publish your book online.
