10:30am - 11:45am Your experience with an electronic text will vary depending on both the physical eReader and software you use to access the material. In addition, how we interact with academic texts can be quite different from texts we read for pleasure. All these factors can impact your and your students experience when accessing materials through Watzek’s Ebook Collections. Of the course of the Institute, we’ll ask participants to interact in specific ways with our selected digital texts. In this session, we’ll share our experiences and hear from Jim Bunnelle and Dan Kelley about how others are using these collections.
