What Is an Educational E-Book?

An educational e-book is an electronic book that teaches the reader a subject or skill. Educational e-books are non-fiction in nature and are often used by teachers to learn more about a subject or to expand upon lessons they plan to teach their students.

E-books are books presented in electronic form, accessible by using a computer, tablet or e-reader such as the Kindle or Nook. E-books are popular due to their portability and the sheer amount of genres and subjects available from the many retailers that sell them. Many schools encourage the use of e-books in place of textbooks, due to the reduction of cost associated with printed books and materials.
