I'm a writer, scientist, musician, inventor and lecturer. During the daytime I am advisor to the President of Shenkar College. In the evening I write children's books, satire, and "how to" manuals ("Mel's ten tips). I'm co-founder of Ourboox and married to Ourboox CEO Shuli Sapir-Nevo.
Ourboox is the world’s simplest platform for creating and sharing page-flipping interactive ebooks.
The books are absolutely free to create, free to read and free to share with your class, other teachers, and the world. Students love preparing their own. We started in 2014 and already have over 120,000 titles!

They are easy to create, easier to share. The books can incorporate video, sound, maps and many other features. Authors can edit their book at any time.”
Ourboox is used by eTwinning and is recommended by the Ministry of Education.
