Reading on E-Book Readers such as Kindle, Kobo or Nook and using apps for iPad and Android devices is increasingly popular but how useful are these devices for academic work? This workshop will look at a range of devices and apps on the market and will cover key features to look out for when considering purchase. The workshop will also include an opportunity to try out a range of devices including i-Pad; Samsung Galaxy; a range of Amazon Kindles; Kobo; Nook; Smart Phones.
We advise that those attending this session also attend the session just before it on E-books.
