The purpose of this study was to determine whether digital or print textbooks are more effective when it comes to students’ learning. There are a wide variety of electronic textbooks available whose features vary from basic annotation abilities to enhanced e-textbooks that have interactive multimedia. This paper outlines some of the different features available, as well as perspectives on e-textbooks from students, district officials, and teachers. Chapter 1 gives a brief introduction on the topic, while Chapter 2 provides a review of the literature. The final chapter gives an overall summary of the digital versus print textbook debate with regard to student learning. It also provides recommendations and suggestions for further research.
