Digital Textbooks for Students

Digital textbooks, or e-books, are a computer rendition of physical textbooks with additional features. To address different learning styles and needs, a digital textbook is usually designed with progress indicators, note-taking, reference tools, advanced searching, videos, animations, or audio resources.

A digital textbook may be more interactive and engaging. It is often designed with modern tech-savvy learners in mind.
