College consortium launching eTextbook pilot program this fall

eCampus News reports that EDUCAUSE and the Internet2 Consortium have joined together with several colleges and universities to run a 28-campus eTextbook pilot starting this fall. The groups' objective is to bring prices down in order to increase the number of students who can afford to purchase textbooks. McGraw-Hill Education will supply the eTextbooks, and Courseload will supply the eReader and annotation software. Universities participating in the test include Indiana University, the University of Wisconsin at Madison, the University of Minnesota, Cornell, the University of Virginia and the University of California-Berkeley.
