Abstract

Mobile Technology (MT) provides many opportunities to individuals, such as talking with people, watching movie clips, and reading books whenever or wherever they want. This also allows individuals to frequently connect for learning. One of the most popular uses of MTs for learning is their use as E-book readers. This chapter consists of four sections about how mobile technologies are being used as E-book readers by learners. Furthermore, this chapter will discuss an ongoing E-book reader project in Turkey called “FATIH”. General information about E-book readers will be provided in the first section of this chapter. The second section gives an overview of various studies on E-book readers. In the third section of the chapter, the authors discuss a recent instructional project in Turkey and its possible international implications. The last section of the chapter offers the summary of presented concepts and their future applications.
