Ebooks in education.
The advantages of ebooks are varied and diverse, from engaging students in the content to creating a flexible learning environment. The specific benefits of ebooks in augmenting learning include:

An interactive experience helps the material stick better and makes for more engaging, impactful learning.
- Flexible. Instead of lugging textbooks around everywhere, with an ebook you can access entire lesson plans right from your mobile device or computer — an especially useful feature for self-guided or nontraditional learners.
- Convenient. You can download ebooks and accompanying lesson plans instantly from different educational resource websites. This convenience makes it easy to customize your learning experience, with online PDFs and reading materials at your fingertips, ready to be accessed, downloaded, and marked up with notes.
- Affordable. Ebooks also are less expensive than printed textbooks, offering students significant savings.
