Abstract

The age-old tradition of professors selecting a "required text" for each university course just might become a thing of the past. As students and professors alike become tech savvy, many professors are moving toward maintaining a collection of their own on-line resources that can be made available for students. The idea that "one size fits all" in terms of textbook selection may no longer apply. As more information becomes available on the Internet, professors and students have begun to utilize electronic resources to supplement and even replace textbook driven learning.
