In Conversation: The E-Textbook Conundrum

The e-textbook revolution has been anticipated by campuses to help lower costs for students, add flexibility for instructors, and further engage leaners.

  • Robin Schulze, English Department Head at the Pennsylvania State University
  • Paul Musket, Assoc. Director, University Bookstore at the University of Missouri
