From Tech News Daily:
Students may no longer enjoy the luxury of slacking off in privacy because of new electronic textbooks that report their study habits.
Teachers can track the time spent reading e-textbooks and see the notes or highlights made by students through the new service offered by CourseSmart Analytics. Three U.S. universities and colleges have signed on to test the e-textbook service before it becomes widely available in 2013 — a way to identify students who need help and gauge the e-textbooks that hold student interest.
