Last winter, Hewlett Packard conducted a 10-minute online survey at the San Jose State University (SJSU) to measure student preference for e-textbooks and printed version.
This survey, though small in sampling, clearly indicates that students still prefer ink-on-paper despite easier content accessibility and searchability via e-textbooks, or familiarity with computers, e-reading devices or e-books.
This survey also revealed reasons for preferring print, which ranged from “ease of use” (54%), “note-taking ability” (35%) to “physical feel of book” (11%).
