We are taking the next step into the digital world; the E-book is rising in popularity for its convenience and is through mobile devices easily accessible. Whether we like it or not, the pressed ‘regular’ book as we all know it is under high pressure. Even in the education branch E-books are being used more frequently. Several high schools are already using E-books and even in kindergartens little students are already using tablets as if they were born with it. Anyone that recognizes the possibilities understands that the benefits are endless. With digital course material it is possible to peak into your course book whenever you feel like it and the online aspects makes it accessible for every mobile device at anytime, anywhere.

Now you would simply take out your mobile device, open the latest updated version of your book and search the specific topic you were looking for.
