New e-reader pilot program launched in Germany

The University of Hagen (a distance learning school in Hagen, Germany) put out a press release earlier this month. A group of Graduate Education students were given Sony Touch Editions  for the summer semester. All of the content for the summer semester is included on the ereader, and the devices will only be loaned to the students for the summer semester.

Converting that content to a Sony compatible format took several months. As part of the program, the students are required to keep a weekly journal of their experiences. They'll also be interviewed twice during the semester.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
