Abstract

The digital revolution has changed the way people produce, store, and consume media. Educators have not escaped this revolution and are increasingly relying on digital tools to disseminate course content and are taking an increasingly role in the production of course materials. The effectiveness of this digital content is influenced not only in the content itself or the text in which it is written, but also by formatting and organizational tools used to present the text. These tools, called signals, could facilitate or distract from the readability and thus utility of the content. This paper will explore what e-text signals are available to facilitate reading.
