The E-MATE team describes a widget as a digital element purposely infused in an e-book to enable and encourage readers to interact with content to enhance learning and understanding. Widgets have the potential to increase student engagement by inviting readers to "do", not just "read and review".
The team’s primary e-book development tool, iBooks Author, includes tools to create Pop-Over, Media, Scrolling Side Bar, Interactive Image, Keynote, 3D, Gallery, Review, and HTML widgets. The HTML widget allows e-book developers to easily add HTML widgets created using third-party software tools, such as Book Widgets, Tumult Hype, and Bookry, in iBooks Author.
