A/V Now Available > Innovate 2012 > Digital Textbooks: Social And Economic Factors Of Diffusion > April 12 2012


Digital Textbooks have been on the cusp of rapid diffusion for at least five years. A number of recent foundation-supported Open Educational Resources projects (OpenStax, Ohio Scaffold to the Stars) encourage the adoption of digital, low-cost learning resources. Traditional commercial publishers also have turned toward digital, with millions of students working on digital platforms. Despite these trends, most of the faculty attending this presentation adopt print, rather than digital, resources. We'll discuss the counter-trend and trend, and propose when we'll reach the digital tipping point. Session led by Steve Acker, Research Director, The Ohio Bookshelf Project, Ohio Board of Regents and OhioLINK, John Magill, Executive Director, OHIOLink, Victoria Getis, Director, Digital Union, Ohio State.
