Textbook Affordability: Emerging Solutions in Ohio
Monday, April 4, 2011
Over the past few years, we've seen a growing interest in electronic educational resources and a move toward digital textbooks as a way to help a financially distressed higher education. During this webinar, we'll discuss why textbook costs have skyrocketed; how textbook costs impact students, faculty, and institutions; and current initiatives by the University System of Ohio to address textbook affordability and learning outcomes. We'll also discuss what defines open educational resources and open textbooks and how they can reduce costs by up to 80 percent while increasing quality and accessibility.
