Hi all -

Has anyone been facing challenges with e-books for open book exams?  Any good solutions?  We are generally using ExamSoft, and for those classes with e-books, we are using the semi-secure mode i.e. students can't access the internet but can have the e-book as a pdf on their desktop.  I have heard that annotations don't accompany the download for some vendors (in some classes permission has been given to make notes in margins), and worry about proctoring in semi-secure mode (because students could have a variety of files on their desktop).

In some ways, this may be more a policy question than a tech question!  But as e-books are becoming more ubiquitous, I'm curious if anyone has some creative ways of approaching this.
