CourseSmart allows professors to monitor reading patterns.

First, technology made students' lives easier by enabling them to read wikis instead of their textbooks. Now, technology is recommending that students return to their textbooks or their professors will find out.

CourseSmart, a digital course material publisher and platform, has created a new analytics program for e-textbooks that will enable teachers to check students’ usage of the e-textbook. The analytics tool allows instructors to monitor their students’ reading progress, page views, the time they spent reading, and their highlighting and note-taking habits within the e-book. Additionally, the program will provide teachers with an overall engagement score based on students’ use and activity within the e-book.
