New E-Textbooks Report Student Study Habits

New E-Textbooks Report Student Study Habits | Do iPads improve learning? | Scoop.it

"Students may no longer enjoy the luxury of slacking off in privacy because of new electronic textbooks that report their study habits. Teachers can track the time spent reading e-textbooks and see the notes or highlights made by students through the new service offered by CourseSmart Analytics. Three U.S. universities and colleges have signed on to test the e-textbook service before it becomes widely available in 2013 — a way to identify students who need help and gauge the e-textbooks that hold student interest."
