Comments on OER Textbook

Q: What did you like most and like least about the E-Textbook, and please provide any ways to improve.

  • This was the first class I have taken that provided an e-textbook for the course which I really enjoyed; having our textbook in this format was just as helpful, if not more, as a normal paperback textbook.
  • I like the most that it provides excellent basic information of business.
  • I loved the free textbook! It was very easy to use and I really appreciated not having to pay for an expensive textbook.
  • I like that it is easy to access! It is just as helpful as an actual book
  • I like how interactive the E-Textbook is and the page summaries it includes at the bottom of each page. I do not have any complaints about the textbook.
  • i liked the most was the price of the book, and i least liked that you couldn’t have some audio to read along with.
  • I like how each section of each chapter is all on one page and and the font size is good. The arrow on the bottom right does not allow you to go to the next page.
  • I didn’t use the E-Textbook.
  • The E-Textbook is free so you save money and its easy and efficient to work with. There is nothing i have to say negative about the E-Textbook.
  • Easy to access and understand.
  • I could access it anywhere without having to lug around a heavy book. I really don’t have any suggestions for improvements!
  • The E-book was very affordable and easy to navigate, I have no complaints.
  • I love that i didn’t have to pay for it :)! I can get access to it anywhere with internet! Its a little hard to focus sometimes, maybe if there were highlighting tools that were available so that we can highlight important things and find it easily when its time to use.
  • The price and ease of access are very appealing, I spent close to $200 on my other textbooks and they are hard to access and use especially the McGraw Hill textbooks two of my other courses use. I cannot think of any areas that the book could improve.
  • The fact that the textbook is free is wonderful because it is one less financial stress that students need to worry about.
  • I only wish that you could have the whole chapter on a singular page so if you’re searching for a specific section in the whole chapter it would be easier to search through completely.
  • I like that is was easy to access and affordable.
  • I did not dislike anything about the E-Textbook. I felt it was very informative along with the powerpoint presentations.
  • At first the downloaded version was a bit difficult to use the find option however the online version that was loaded by the professor for each week was extremely user friendly. Love it!
  • I liked that it stated key points that we should know at the bottom
  • What I liked most was the cost and what I liked least was I do not enjoy reading large amounts of pages on the computer screen. An improvement I can think of is perhaps printing off the free E-text and making a quick makeshift, cheap binding? That being said I really don’t need it that badly and I could just print it if I really need to.
  • I liked most that it was free, good quality and easy to use. Somewhere along the way the e-textbook because difficult to view online. For some reason it wasn’t loading right. I’m not sure if it’s something on my end or something on the program side so I ended up using the e-textbook that I downloaded at the start of the course.

  • Very Easy To Read
  • Although I did not actually use the E-Textbook, as I am a student who needs to look at something and be able to highlight, I thought it was a great idea for those who might not have access to finances for textbooks.
