eText@Illinois offers faculty an ideal platform for building multimedia-rich online course content (original authored content, course packs, or published textbooks) that can be viewed from any device with a web browser. Offerings on eText@Illinois are fully accessible to students with visual, auditory, and motor impairments making this program a frontrunner in the national electronic textbook movement. Since the inception of eText@Illinois, over 7500 students have used an eText in place of a traditional textbook, saving them money and significantly improving their textbook user experience. Join us for this Teaching with Technology Brown Bag as Milind Basole and Yury Borukhovich showcase the power and beauty of eText@Illinois.
