Exploring the Use of E-Textbooks in Higher Education: A Multiyear Study

Source: 
Sample: 

Three years if data

2012 - 933 students at UCF taking online courses 

2014 - 1181 students at UCF taking online courses 

2016 - 1474 students at UCF taking online courses 

Summary: 

To better understand this changing landscape, our research team at UCF conducted three surveys (in 2012, 2014, and 2016) to assess college students' attitudes and practices concerning e-textbooks. Our research was limited to current practices and attitudes, since the university's restrictive bookstore agreement did not permit an institutional-level initiative to broaden the adoption of e-textbooks.
