Free Textbooks Considered for Online Courses - J’Mari Hughes, the Southern News

Approximately five courses currently use Open Educational Resources, a free online textbook system, said Director of the Adanti Student Center Brad Crerar. “If the university can save someone 50 dollars on a book this semester,” Crerar said, “it’s all that much more, so anytime we can save the students money, we’ve got to see how, and that’s exactly what they’re doing right now.” Crerar said OER is currently a nationwide trend. When writing textbooks, he said, some authors may be in favor of students saving money than making it themselves, thereby granting their book at no cost. https://thesouthernnews.org/2019/02/27/free-online-textbooks-considered-for-courses/
