Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the similarities and differences between in-service and pre-service teachers’ perspectives about using eBooks in the classroom. In addition, the study was to discover factors that affect in-service and pre-service teachers’ beliefs about the implementation of eBooks in the classroom. An instructor self-designed survey was given to participants after the demonstration of several online eBook activities. Descriptive statistics were used to report participants’ educational background, stage of technology skills, and teaching experiences. The T-test was utilized to compare in-service and pre-service teachers’ perspectives about using ebooks.
