I’ve noticed how more and more textbooks are being offered in a digital format. As a student I think this is very opportunistic and attractive on many levels. It saves carrying heavy books around for one thing. Furthermore, it saves energy and the environment because physical materials are not involved. And one can still highlight and make notes in a digital textbook just like in a hard copy so there is no impediments to usage there. In my profession as an instructor, I receive choreography notes to teach specific programs, a couple of years the change was made from receiving physical notes to digital PDFs. And in the instructor training I completed this weekend, the manual for the training was an editable PDF. It is clearly a growing trend in my professional practice. Moreover, future generations are going to be more accustomed to reading off screens I think which will make this a more familiar and comfortable option. I personally find that reading off a tablet is faster. I think that making textbooks digital makes them more accessible and portable and makes learning more practical and cost effective
