Recent technological advancements, along with an increase in mobile Internet access, have spurred on significant developments in the production of e-textbooks. This case study explored the affordances of an iPad e-textbook through teacher and student experiences in English lessons using observation and interviews. The results showed that English learners and teacher benefited from handy and quick web access and the all-in-one features of the e-textbook (dictionary, hyperlinks, and note-taking functions). However, information oversupply by the e-textbook confused students` learning and both students and teacher pointed out technical difficulties in using the e-textbook. In order to implement English pedagogy with technologies such as iPad e-textbooks, teachers should be equipped with the relevant technical skills and content knowledge in order to assist them in becoming autonomous learners in the digital classroom.
