About the Ebook

This book was published as part of a program funded by Jisc consisting of four projects which investigated the viability of institutions publishing their own e-textbooks and discovering the benefits to students in doing so.

This project has taken a novel approach by developing this companion website, not designed to be a substitute for the e-textbook, rather it will enrich the readers experience. The website contains additional resources such as video and audio recorded by the writers and other experts in research, as well as digital artefacts and useful external links. Students can interact with other readers by contributing to each chapters discussion forum.

The partners in the project are University of the Highlands and Islands, Lews Castle College UHI and Edinburgh Napier University.
