‘Textbook-free’ course now at Nashua Community College, more in the fall - LUCILLE JORDAN, Nashua Community College

This fall, Nashua Community College launched its first “textbook-free” Open Educational Resource class with English 101.  So far switching to an OER English 101, one of the most commonly enrolled courses, has impacted 21 percent of the NCC student body and brought the cost for the English 101 textbook from $118.25 to $0.  Professor Jennifer Tripp, coordinator of the English program and OER lead at Nashua Community College explains, “Using OER isn’t just about making things free – that is also very important – but it’s also about more innovative teaching.”
