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/.

Yury,

This sounds fascinating to me and I would like to learn more about it.  I did follow your link and then clicked on the "Sign In" button but could find no way to get past the entry page which requires a specific credential.  Might there be a way for guests to request access to these eTexts?
