Abstract: Increasing the engagement of students both in lectures and in general has long been considered an issue in higher education. This links closely with the ongoing quest to improve student performance. Although these are widely researched areas there is a lack of research that focuses specifically on the use of interactive e-books. This study details the process of implementing an interactive e-book (REVEL) in a first semester module and presents the initial findings. This study provides insights into the potential use and benefits of interactive e-books and presents the start of a longer research study into the effect on performance and engagement. Critically this research shows one way in which excellence in business and management education is being sought, one that is easily accessible to business schools across the country.
