Flipsnack is a free online tool that allows you or your students to create flipping books, either by using existing PDFs or by creating books from scratch on their website. While there are some limitations with the free version, like limiting books to 15 pages and not being able to download them, it is an easy tool students can use for creating projects.
To create a book from a PDF, you simply upload a PDF or multiple PDFs and combine them into one book. The book can then be easily shared with others through a link and read online. Any interactive content from the PDFs like web links are still active and the book can be "read" by turning pages, just like an actual book.
My favorite option with flipsnack is the ability to create books within the site. Students can create a book, add and rearrange pages, use premade layouts to make page creation easier, insert pictures, text, links, and other media, and then publish and share their books. Creating and editing pages is easy and streamlined, as well as publishing and sharing. All of these options make flipsnack a great choice for student projects or for teachers to use to create resources for their students.
