E-Textbooks are becoming more and more common on campuses.  The advantages are that they, in theory, will save students a lot of money because production costs would decrease significantly.  But, the question I am left with is how this will impact learning.  Personally, my learning improves when I am reading from a paper copy that I can mark up, highlight, underline, draw diagrams on, etc.  But, I recognize that that probalby isn't the case for everyone.  I really don't have much experience with e-textbooks, but I have heard that some of the newer versions have note-taking, highlighting functionality.  My big question in all of this is will learning be impacted?
