Why aren’t students using E-Books? because they're too expensive, maybe? Because you can't share them? Because they don't exist for many textbooks? Audrey Watters writes, "it does highlight the ways in which students’ needs aren’t being met yet by digital content providers. That means there’s still a huge opportunity here to reshape what the textbooks of the future look like. Openly licensed content, for example, could address students’ concerns about sharing. Better social tools could help meet their needs for social reading and learning."
