Abstract

In today’s higher education landscape, graduate students are faced with many challenges such as a lagging job market, re-tooling of their skills, and paying for their advanced degrees. Many graduate students are taking college courses online and are finding the need to become more technology savvy. Along with the need to become more technology literate, graduate students are learning new ways to access information such as course and research materials, communicate collaboratively online, and finding the lowest costs for their textbooks. This study examined graduate students’ perceptions of using digital textbooks, including their opinions about using them in their classes and any other prior experience with digital textbooks that they may have.
