E-text at Daytona State College
A Study of Four Textbook Distribution Models
By Benjamin Graydon, Blake Urbach-Buholz, and Cheryl Kohen
Two years ago, Daytona State College, embarked on the task of researching the implementation of E-text at Daytona State College. The goal was to convert all traditional text books to E-text readers. Since that time, a wealth of information has been gathered including E-text contacts, articles, and basic functionality requirements. The purpose of this site is to share that information with other colleges and organizations who are hoping to start a similar E-text initiative.
