A Different Kind Of Leader


– #19 –

Textbooks are expensive, clunky, and essential. So, what are students to do? E-Textbooks seem to be the leading solution to our never-ending textbook turmoil.

As the projected graph below implies, textbooks are beginning to slump in popularity against the cheaper and interactive alternative e-books.

[APPLE]

Apple appears to agree with the trend. The Wall Street Journal published an article today titled “Apple Makes Push Into iPad Textbooks.” The report mentions that Apple’s iBook application will “support textbooks featuring quizzes, note-taking, study cards and other features, like the ability to interact with a diagram of an ant.”

What is your opinion of e-textbooks? Do you think they complement the learning process or distract from the purpose all together?
