What is Mixbook?

MixBook is an online tool that allows users to collaborate to create a virtual book. Photos can be uploaded from your computer or an image hosting site and easily added to the book through a drag and drop method. MixBook has a huge number of layouts, backgrounds, and graphics that can be added to the project. Text can be added and formatted as well; however, audio is not available on this site.

One of the greatest features of Mixbook is that multiple people can collaborate on a book at the same time. Students can therefore be assigned certain pages of the book to create a class book together. Users can share their completed books on the web through linking or embedding or can have the book printed as a high-quality print photo book.

Watching the tutorial video to the right will help you get starting creating your first Mixbook.
