As I understand it, the issues are much more complicated with digital content in an educational setting. For starters, there are distinct fee structures. Plus, there are issues around integration (with the learning management system (LMS)), not to mention technologies that'll permit collaboration and sharing with teachers and other students. --Ellis Booker

re: E-Textbook Pilot Puts College Books In Cloud
I'm surprised there hasn't been more progress in the e-textbook movement for college reading material, considering how prevalent e-books have become in the consumer world. Also, presumably most college students, being younger, are more likely carrying tablets and e-readers than the average person anyway.
