In 2012, EDUCAUSE and Internet2 sponsored an initiative to pilot the use of e-textbooks at several universities. A key component of the pilot was to develop a research initiative to evaluate e-textbooks for teaching and learning. This seminar explores how a collaborative multi-university research approach was developed, challenges in designing a research project for emerging academic technologies, and promising practices for building a successful research consortium. Methods, instruments, and results from the pilots will also be shared. Participants will have an opportunity, using one of their own projects, to outline the key elements needed to build an inter-institutional research approach.
