Quote from Goodoldnurse
We have our textbooks available electronically. The students can purchase them as well as the faculty. They are wonderful! You can place the table or picture straight from their textbook onto your powerpoint! This has helped my students focus and directs them back to their textbook to read! They can also download the books to their laptops and carry it with them! This is by evolve.
I'm a nursing student, and our school uses evolve for most of our textbooks.
I find it's great, a real time saver. Plus I can carry one laptop to school, instead of 2 or 3 large texts.
From a student's point of view, I'd encourage faculty to take a good look at this. (No, I don't have any connection to the publisher....)
