WorldWideLearn.com recently launched “Could Apple Revolutionize Textbooks?”, an infographic exploring the growth of digital textbooks as they begin to infiltrate the now paper-dominated textbook marketplace. Although textbooks are still predominately used in education settings, a CourseSmart and Wakefield Research study revealed 71 percent of students would prefer to go digital. When Apple released iBooks 2, a free app that brings full-screen, interactive digital textbooks to students via the iPad, the app delivered more than 350,000 copies of e-textbooks to users in its first three days. Previous digital textbook technology has not been adopted widely, but staggering sales suggests that this could change the industry.
