Digital Textbooks

There are a variety of eBooks available to students and educators.  This video is a short demo of a few of those types.

Digital Textbook Overview:

Enhanced PDF:  Print versions that have been converted to a digital version but lack interactive content.

  1. Pearson eReader
  2. Course Smart
  3. Cafe Scribe
  4. Kindle
  5. KNO
  6. Nook
These readers are all relatively similar in that they provide students to access their textbooks in a digital format.  They allow students to read, highlight and search the content.

 

Interactive Textbooks:  Have interactive content including pictures, 3D images, video and quiz questions.
