Particularly for iPad classrooms, using AirDrop is a great way for students to turn in work at the end of the lesson.

You can even send books from an iPad to a MacBook and vice versa, so you may use this method to transfer books between Book Creator for iPad and Book Creator online.

If you're new to AirDrop, read up on how it works from the Apple Support website.

1. Make sure AirDrop is turned on

Swipe down from the top right of the screen to open the Control Center, then tap on the AirDrop icon.

2. Choose your book and export it

Go to the 'My Books' screen and tap the export icon. Choose a format (it should be ePub if you want to send it to Book Creator).

If the other iPad has AirDrop turned on, you can tap on their name to start sending the book.

3. Accept the incoming book

From the receiving iPad, the book will automatically be saved to the Files app. Click on the ePub file in the Files app and then click on the share button in the top right hand corner.

Once you've clicked on the share button, you'll see a menu pop up where you can select which app you want to send the ePub file to. Click on the Book Creator icon and the file will open in the Book Creator app.
