Ebooks: the format of the academic future from @guardian

We have a profoundly different higher education system to the one that took shape in the 19th and 20th centuries. Technology is influencing higher education as never before. As Google chief Eric Schmidt has said, the internet isn't making inevitable change faster; it has become the engine of change.
I do not believe in technological determinism. Nothing is inevitable, and we have the power to shape the way we use technologies. But, a technological revolution is taking place and it will go ahead with or without us.
