Not using printed textbooks saved Louisiana community college students $2.7 million - Leigh Guidry, Lafayette Daily Advertiser

The community and technical college system is looking for ways to save students money, and it's paying off. Since switching to open educational resources (OERs) in more classes last year, students across the Louisiana Community and Technical College System saved $2.7 million.That's millions of dollars students would have paid for textbooks and materials in fall 2017 and spring 2018, system President Monty Sullivan said. When it comes to the cost of college and attendance, which encompasses more than just tuition, "we're very much mindful of our price point," Sullivan said. https://www.theadvertiser.com/story/news/local/education/2018/08/28/community-college-students-textbooks-louisiana/1109368002/
