Open Education Resources (OERs), Including Open Textbook Resources
Did you know? Research has shown that 60-80% of students have decided to not purchase a required class textbook because it costs too much (Everard & Pierre, 2014; Hilton, 2016; Prasad & Usagawa, 2014; Yang, 2015)
Did you know? There are lots of high quality open source textbook and class resources available for you and your students. Students and faculty have generally found these open, free, resources to be as good or better than costly textbooks and also appreciate the lower cost (Feldstein, Martin, Hudson, Warren, Hilton, & Wiley, 2012; Lindshield, & Adhikari, 2013; Lovett, Meyer, & Thille, 2008; Yang, 2015).
