EDUCAUSE Review features case study on IU eText initiative

Just how many college instructors actually use eTexts and why do they choose to? A new case study published in EDUCAUSE Review reports on Indiana University's eText initiative, its participation levels and motivations for faculty adoption. The study found that instructors play an important role in e-text adoption by modeling active eText use and creating meaningful interaction around the content. Bottom line: when instructors engage with eTexts, so do their students.

The case study is the result of cross-discipline collaboration among IU colleagues Anastasia S. Morrone, associate vice president for learning technologies and dean for IT, Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis; Serdar Abaci, educational research and evaluation specialist, learning technologies; and Alan R. Dennis, John T. Chambers Chair of Internet Systems, Kelley School of Business.
