Importance of ebooks in Education
The aim of eBooks is to simplify and enhance the overall learning experience. Digital Books make the learning process more interactive and engaging.
Instead of listening to one person continuously talking, students can now actively participate in the learning process. Integrating eBooks into classroom teaching makes learning a fun and engaging experience. Gone are the days when students had to carry a bag full of books every day to classrooms and back home.
