- Developing an Effective E-Textbook for CS101 Students at UH Hilo: An iBook Instructional Module
Today’s college students rely on digital devices to socialize, organize, and search for information. Many are opting for digital learning resources in place of print textbooks; therefore, institutions of higher education need to address students’ changing needs. Recent studies have found that the mere transfer of print books to digital format without interactive components does not affect performance or engagement of students (Weisberg, 2011).
