Online Textbooks and the Social Innovation Engagement

As I have asked, eight out of ten of my friends didn’t buy their textbooks for this semester, even though some of those books are compulsory readings. The fact that majority prices of university textbooks are usually high, it may affect the learning outcomes of students who cannot afford the textbooks.

One of the major problems university students face when it comes to buying textbooks is the inability and unwillingness to purchase expensive textbooks. In addition, either the students are in a hurry with their courses about to begin or they realize that buying textbooks is one requirement of the courses in the middle of the semester will affect the outcomes of study. Both of these problems can be solved through using online method to access university textbooks.

There are more choices for students to access the textbooks instead of buy them through bookstore. Therefore, our campaign “Make Textbooks Affordable” aims to establish an “Online Textbook Station” hub for Australian University students; as well as to provide legal online downloadable textbooks for students. The authority of online texts and publications are low-cost. It is also a convenient, direct and instant way for students to have reading activities via digital technologies and internet based database.
