Exploring the Use of E-Textbooks in Higher Education: A Multiyear Study - 1 views

  •  
    Takeaways: "A four-year university-wide study of students' e-textbook practices found that e-textbook use has increased, particularly among younger students. The major barriers - including a student preference for print and unfamiliarity with e-textbooks - show signs of being alleviated. Other factors related to mobile device access and pedagogically effective e-textbooks show little change over the study period.
    Instructor practices have improved, but there is still room for growth, with implications for focused professional development."
