Inside Higher Ed reported this morning on a recent survey of iPad and e-textbook use by college students on four-year campuses.
“But even as iPad adoption appears to have stagnated, e-textbooks show signs of finally gaining traction. Twenty percent of students in this year’s survey either bought or ‘rented’ an e-textbook this spring. Over all, electronic versions accounted for 9 percent of all textbook purchases. Print textbooks are nowhere close to extinction, though.”
