Abstract

This article attempts to further the literature on technology in the classroom by performing an initial investigation on an innovative new textbook technology in an undergraduate legal studies course, such as the Legal Environment of Business. First, we discuss the traditional methods of teaching the law at both the law school and undergraduate levels. We also review the history and effectiveness of using technology in law school and legal studies classrooms. Next, we look the use of textbooks in legal education. Then, we introduce an adaptive and interactive textbook technology and compare it to other electronic texts in the current higher education market. Finally, we present and analyze focus group data regarding our students’ perceptions of adaptive and interactive textbook technology, and conclude with our recommendations for this technology’s use in the undergraduate legal studies classroom.
