All Things e: readers, books and textbooks

I presented on April 9, 2010 at the NJEDge.Net/EATF Meeting titled  "An exploration of all things e-reader, e-book, e-textbook" which was held at at Fairleigh Dickinson University, Madison, New Jersey.

The presentations included reports from three eReader pilot projects at Farleigh Dickinson, Princeton and Seton Hall Universities. Pearson Education presented on eTextbooks and ePublishing formats. Members of VALE discussed purchasing of eBooks by libraries.

My own talk was a brief introduction on how eTextbooks and Open Educational Resources mix in the Open Textbook movement. The slides presentation is available below.
