Open your classroom with Open Educational Resources (OER)

College textbooks cost too much. College textbook prices have risen 812% since 1978, far outpacing the rate of price increase for medical services (575%), new home prices (325%), and the Consumer Price Index (250%). From 2003 to 2013 college textbook prices rose 82%, approximately triple the rate of inflation in overall consumer prices (CPI) during the same time (27%).

Meanwhile, research shows that students who used open textbooks tended to have higher grades and lower withdrawal rates than their peers who used traditional textbooks.

Come and learn about how you can get paid to adopt or create an open educational resource for your classroom!
