Preliminary Results on a Printed vs Electronic Text books Assessment through Questionnaire

Dimitrios Kouis, Kanella Pouli

Abstract


This paper presents the initial results of a survey that took place among higher education students in Greece84. The aim of the survey was to identify and analyze the attitude, and probable acceptance, of electronic textbooks as well as the transition from printed to electronic textbooks used by the Greek Universities and Technological Education Institutes. Although e-books have turned out to be the mainstream delivery method for the majority of publishers, the printed vs electronic academic textbook debate has become more often nowadays. The complexity of an ebook content as well as the intensity needed for reading are two of the most important reasons why students seem reluctant towards this transition
