BASICS of ONLINE BOOKS (in Education)
Dianna Colmen

An on-line book is an ebook that is available online through the Internet, whether or not distributed free. It differs from an ebook, because many eBooks are released in formats to be directly inserted into a reader, such as a CD. Such offline distribution was the normal method before the development of the Internet.
