Perceived Factors Influencing Instructors' Use of E-Textbooks in Higher Education
Wang, Sirui; Hartsell, Taralynn
International Journal of Information and Communication Technology Education, v13 n4 Article 7 p87-97 2017
As a form of digital content, e-Textbooks make learning content portable, transferable, and searchable. Such technology increases students' engagement in learning and make learning highly interactive. However, the adoption of using e-Textbooks in higher education is far from its confirmation stage. This study examines the relationship between perceived attributes of using e-Textbooks by instructors and their actual use of e-Textbooks in higher education. A survey study has been conducted to measure how instructors from public universities in colleges of education perceive using e-Textbooks in higher education. The findings suggest that instructors, institutions, and e-Textbooks publishers should work collaboratively to enhance the use of e-Textbooks in higher education.
