Abstract

This paper will present the design and evaluation of an interactive eTextbook meant for Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s robotic engineering class, RBE1001. Articles and other literature were used to research teaching methods, textbook writing, eTextbooks, and evaluation strategies, to develop and present the evaluation procedure, consisting of surveys, a focus group, and a quiz. Following that procedure, data were gathered from the current class and analyzed. The results were inconclusive due to insufficient data about usage of the eTextbook.
