Open Educational Resource textbooks could save students hundreds per semester - MCKAY JOHNSEN, Utah State University

A resolution to spread awareness over Open Educational Resources at USU was passed on Jan. 7 by the Utah State University Student Association academic senate that has the potential to save students thousands of dollars in textbook costs, which have gone up by over 85% since 2006. “USU Libraries and Academic & Instructional Services are collaborating with various colleges on campus to offer faculty grants for the adoption, adaption, or creation of OER to enhance their classes,” said OER Coordinator Kori Ellis. “The theory behind OER, or Open Educational Resources, is that knowledge should be free, unlimited, and accessible to everyone, everywhere, and not locked behind a paywall.” https://usustatesman.com/open-educational-resource-textbooks-could-save-students-hundreds-per-semester/
