It is out of question that some new technologies help some people learn in some instances and that new technologies offer different potentials for learning. E-books are one of such new technologies. In this exploratory study we wanted to see how e-textbooks are used in classroom and how their use is perceived by teachers and students engaging in learning activities with them. We adopted a case study approach guided by multimodal principles. Our results show that however e-textbooks favor a communicative active style of learning, there still are real challenges to be overcome by e-textbook editorials so that it does not become the next forgotten fad.
