Technology has become an indispensible element in foreign language teaching. It allows language learners, who have different learning styles, to develop their linguistic skills and understand the materials at their own pace. Solomon and Schrum (2007) explained that technology makes it possible to target the appropriate approaches for each student (visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners). E-books offer both the content of a traditional book and portability and efficiency of multi-media use. This technology opens up opportunities for instructors of LCTLs to develop textbooks tailor-made to suit their varied teaching pedagogies as well as teaching philosophy. Bhakti Shah, a Ph.D. student in Higher Education, and an instructor of Hindi at Ohio University will conduct the presentation. The presentation will provide insight on how the e-book, Hindi Made Easy was created, including the widgets selected to create interactive activities and make learning materials more dynamic and engaging.
