The aim of eTIPS is to investigate the question “Will the institution as e-textbook creator help students by providing a more affordable higher education, and promote a better, more sustainable information environment for libraries, students and faculty?”.
eTIPS is exploring this through:
Producing two e-textbooks to support student research projects; Developing a companion website providing access to relevant open education resources; Researching and evaluating the uptake and use of the books by students and staff; Identifying lessons learned from the entire process, including recommendations for the future development of e-textbooks within universities.
This presentation will explore the progress of eTIPS to date, including lessons learned thus far.
