College professors are starting to use e-books in their classes more frequently.
That's according to a survey conducted by the Educause Center for Analysis and Research. Twenty-six percent of undergrads said they did not use an e-book in class. But 35 percent said they used e-books in one class, and 22 percent said they used an e-book in a few classes.
Texts in digital form should certainly be cheaper to produce and distribute. So, that's a big advantage, given the other high prices attached to getting a degree these days.
