Transition to Electronic Textbooks

Beginning in Summer 2024, the Learning Institute is primarily using electronic textbooks for programming. E-books have several advantages over hard-copy textbooks, including:

  • They are keyword searchable (both within books and across your e-book library).
  • They have read-aloud tools built in, allowing you to listen rather than read online.
  • You can customize the size of text, background brightness, layout, etc. to suit your preferences.
  • They have bookmark and notes tools built in to help you study.
  • They are easy to transport.
  • They are more cost efficient.
