A note from Dr. Thomas Norman:
"This initative pushed me to experiment with eBooks sooner than I would have otherwise. I have learned that most students prefer this option if it saves them money which in the case of my classes it typically does. Switching books also led to me exploring how valuable the online assessment tools are for our students. I now firmly believe that our population needs to work with the material in my classes for 1-2 hours per week outside of class. Doing so is increasing the overall final exam scores and the increase in pre-test to final scores. Publishers are happy because it requires all students to purchase the text so they earn more money per class while charging $100-150 less per book. This seems like a win-win-win to me- student, university, publisher."
