Daytona State College Plans to Convert All Textbooks to Digital Formats


Daytona State College in Florida began an ambitious project in 2009 to offer all textbooks in electronic format.

According to school officials, this could reduce the cost of course materials by as much as 80 percent. More on the initiative here.
