Given the growing popularity of electronic textbooks (e-textbooks) in academia, it is important to evaluate the educational value of such textbooks and whether users can interact with the interface. The problem identified in this book is how to effectively use e-textbooks in a four-year undergraduate business curriculum to facilitate student learning. The answers are contained in Evaluating E-textbook written by Donna N. Losciuto Lane. The answers come from surveying 166 e-textbook users and evaluating students while performing tasks within an e-textbook. The value of this book is to provide information regarding the features of e-textbooks that are considered important and not important in evaluating the educational value and the user interface usability of e-textbooks from the perspective of the users.
