Highlights of E-Books in Higher Education

What is an e-book? While the question may sound trivial, increasingly it is not. The obvious definition is that an e-book is an electronic book that can be read digitally on a computer screen, a special e-book reader, a personal digital assistant (PDA), or even a mobile phone. In other words, e-books are consumed on a screen rather than on paper. However, underlying this simple and seemingly obvious definition are some important distinctions that may make an e-book something other than just a “PDF version of the printed book.” These differences lie in the electronic nature of e-books, which are changing the nature of what a “book” is within an electronic context.

How are e-books like electronic copies of their paper-bound ancestors? With e-books we can establish bookmarks that allow us to jump straight to a page when the book is opened. And it is possible to create an e-book that is the equivalent of a scanned, PDF copy of the original paper-bound text. This form of e-book is referred to as “digitized,” and it currently represents the majority of the e-book market. Like printed books, digitized e-books can have pictures or charts, indices, and tables of contents. That is probably where the comparable characteristics end.

On the side of differences, e-books increasingly take on a number of interactive features, unique to the dynamic environment technology allows. E-books can have built-in dictionaries and pronunciation guides. The e-book is not limited to static pictures; it can also integrate video, audio, animation, and even interactive simulation. As computer games become more complex in storylines and character development, they are becoming a new evolution of literature in which the reader interacts with the story more actively rather than simply reading it. E-books can be delivered in segments, such as Harlequin romance novels that can now be delivered to your mobile phone in daily chapter installments.

As e-books move further away from conveying a story or content in the way print-based books do, we may well ask at what point is an e-book really no longer a book but something else? As with many of the audio formats that have gone before—records, 8-track tapes, cassettes, and now even CDs—our traditional concept of content consumption is changing because of technology, which will ultimately have a profound impact on the concept of a book as new generations of readers mature and gravitate to new technologies.

Hello, Eric. I have underlined some problem areas:

In this article, the writer delimitation and introduce e-book is a electronic version of printed material.

Firstly, he believes e-book is similar to paper-bound forefather, and it may produce an e-book is same as a scanned file and the digitize e-book is mainly in e-book store.

Secondly, he states the dissimilar of E-book and printed book, such as it need haven’t limitation to static image and also with sound and movie, in addition , he examines that game change into more complicated in story and publisher create.

On the last, he asserts that e-book replace printed book is in the long way and he gives an example of audio format is varying, he believes that next generation adult and accept the high technologies, lastly which will have a deep image on notion of a book.
