Look, Ma, No Paper Textbooks! Creatively and Collaboratively Advancing Our E-Content Future

Thursday, October 17 | 10:10AM–11:00AM | Ballroom E
Session Type: E13

Over the past two years, hundreds of faculty at more than 50 colleges and universities collaborated with Internet2, publishers, e-textbook platform providers, and EDUCAUSE to deliver digital versions of textbooks to over 25,000 students in thousands of undergraduate and graduate courses. Come hear the stories of these pilots, including discussion of the key findings of the EDUCAUSE-led collaborative research study of 24 institutions that participated in the fall 2012 pilot. Learn about a new initiative from Internet2/NET+ and partner institutions that will move from these pilots to production e-content service offerings.
