Award winning digital publishing provider, YUDU Media, has come out in agreement with California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s decision and declared that all text books should be put online now.

The e-publishing company, which produces eBooks and digital publications for some of the world’s leading educational publishers and establishments, says that versions of nearly all text books will be online by 2020 on current trends anyway.

The company states that Schwarzenegger’s decision is backed up by both the research and cost equations.

Launching its new education eBook entitled ‘Enhancing Education through Technology', YUDU Media’s CEO Richard Stephenson says: “it is not just education providers who save money, but also the students. With a 2005 US Government Accountability Office report putting the average cost of textbooks at $900 per year, it is estimated each student will save $100’s each year by putting text books online.”

Stephenson continues, “recent research also shows conclusively that readers prefer electronic sources as the top method of finding out more information on any given topic. Combined with eBooks environmentally-friendly credentials, the technology makes a stunning case for any education professional.”

YUDU Media’s new education eBook shows how education professionals can use the technology to its fullest potential. Alongside embedded video and other rich media content, the eBook demonstrates features designed to assist students including a contextual search tool, online page highlighter, page tabs and digital bookmarking.

The user-friendly publications let students instantly print pages with one click, zoom and even save for offline reading. They also allow for a parallel text-only version that can integrate with screen readers for the blind.

Lisa Moore, Marketing Manager of YUDU Media, says: “this technology is useful not just for text books but also prospectuses, syllabuses, theses – essentially any material or collateral published in an educational environment. We feel strongly that eBooks can not only cut costs in education but also seriously transform the learning experience.”
