Abstract—This paper aims to gauge the use of e-books in primary schools in the state of Terengganu, Malaysia. Surveys were conducted among 73 teachers from 14 schools and 101 pupils from five primary schools. The findings revealed that both teachers and pupils showed positive feedback, perception and reception towards the use of e-books as text books. Based on the findings, the paper proposes a framework that enables the effective use of e-books as textbooks in the classroom among pupils and teachers.

Index Terms—E-Books, textbooks, classroom, pupils, teachers.
