Zero-cost textbooks prove accessible to more students - Joshua Aplaon, La Voz

Some professors at De Anza have implemented zero-cost resources and textbooks in their curriculum through Open Educational Resources. The driving force of using OERs is to alleviate students’ financial anxieties by providing easy-to-access, free resources. “Any opportunity for a student to minimize the cost associated with going to school is good for students,” said Mallory Newell, Supervisor of Institutional Research. Newell cites a recurring problem that many students will not buy the textbook if it is out of their financial ability, thus limiting students’ ability to be successful in the class.
