Faculty members may soon be required to use one textbook per course.
One option would be for faculty to use an e-book instead of a textbook.
Some professors have already switched to e-books.
For students who don’t have the money to purchase or rent an e-book, it will be difficult to keep up with class work.
Accessing the e-book can become an inconvenience when you don’t have the latest gadgets or Internet access readily available. It also doesn’t help that the campus Wi-Fi can be unreliable at times.
Professors who use a projector to lecture from an e-book forget the difficulty for students in the back of the class.
It is especially frustrating when the class has a full roster.
Though e-books may be convenient for some, some students still prefer a traditional textbook.
