This session will start with viewing a presentation from Nicky Whitsed, Director of Library Services at the Open University on “The future is mobile: the role of ebooks in the learning and teaching landscape”, which includes an overview of the OU’s e-book platform and how the OU is delivering course materials via iTunes [video from E-books and E-content 2011]. I hope this will lead to a discussion of ways that e-books are already being used in learning and teaching, and future developments.
Alison McNab, Directorate of Library and Learning Services
