Digital textbooks are portable, easily searchable, sustainable and less expensive than printed versions. Why aren’t they being more widely adopted in higher education? And what can be done to lower textbook prices?
ASU’s Matt McCarthy thinks a lot about these questions — and they will be the focus of his presentation on Thursday, Oct. 22, as part of the 2015-16 ASU Humanities Lecture Series, sponsored by the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts on the Downtown Phoenix campus.
McCarthy, a self-described e-book evangelist, comes to this issue from the point of view of a university instructor (he teaches computer information systems to 4,000 students a year in ASU’s W.P. Carey School of Business) and as a parent of six children.
