LBW helps students save book costs - Andalusia Star-News

LBW Community College students are experiencing financial savings as more courses are converted from typical textbook usage to open education resources (OER). “A few years ago, our mathematics faculty successfully redesigned several basic math courses using OER material, saving students more than $300,000 on average each year they would have paid for required textbooks and computer codes,” said LBWCC President Herb Riedel. “Now, as we convert more and more courses in academic transfer and technical training, the cost savings will continue to climb.” https://www.andalusiastarnews.com/2018/07/10/lbw-helps-students-save-book-costs/
