College Students Now Prefer Reading Digital Books to Print, Survey Finds | Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning

College Students Now Prefer Reading Digital Books to Print, Survey Finds | Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning | Modern Educational Technology and eLearning | Scoop.it

"Looking closer at readership of digital books, here are some of the findings:
Seven in 10 college students (70%) have read digital textbooks, compared to 62% a year ago.
Six in 10 high school seniors (58%) have read digital textbooks, compared to 41% a year ago.
Among those students who had previously read a digital textbook, eight in 10 college students (81%) and two-thirds of high school seniors (66%) have read a digital textbook this school year (since September 2011).
Almost six in 10 college students prefer a digital format when reading books for fun (57%) or textbooks for class (58%), while one-third say that they prefer print. This trend can be seen among high school seniors as well, and is mostly driven by an increase in the preference to use tablets for reading.
Other studies have found that e-textbooks still face several obstacles to overcome before digital textbook distribution models become mainstream on college campuses..."
