The eText As A Course-Specific Teaching Tool
With emerging software, it would seem a logical progression for professors to develop their own eTexts for their specific courses. What seems to be emerging in the eText paradigm, however, are "marketed to the masses" eTexts which are, on a positive note, cheaper, but on a negative note, lacking in the specificity as related to particular courses at particular universities. Are there any universities fully embracing the concept of creating their own eTexts specific to their school's teaching culture? And, if so, what are the challenges/rewards of this approach? -Eric Kean ********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at http://www.educause.edu/groups/.
