Session Title

e-Textbooks and Students: Shifting Perceptions

Description

Universities are increasingly offering new models of textbook delivery to students which includes giving the option, or in some cases, requiring the use of e-Textbooks. Despite e-Textbook use being on the rise, many college students are reluctant to adopt this often clunky technology and still prefer printed textbooks. Does training on how to effectively use e-Textbooks improve students’ perceptions? At Rasmussen College, we have provided instructional sessions and webinars to help students become well-versed in the use of their e-Textbooks. To discern how students feel about the adoption of e-Textbooks we have surveyed and assessed students across several campuses. Learn from our experiences as we share the content of our instructional sessions and data collected from students.
