Free Textbook Program Saves Hawaii Community College Students Millions - ASHLEY MIZUO, Hawaii Public Radio

A free textbook program at the University of Hawaii's community colleges has saved students more than $3.4 million since 2015, officials say. The UH Open Educational Resources initiative allows colleges to share and use information to teach for little to no cost. Within that program is a “TXT0” designation, which requires no payment from students. The owners of the multimedia resources give others permission to use their content in a more flexible way than traditional textbooks, similar to the Creative Commons sharing of photos and other content.
