  • In British Columbia we have just started a new project to produce 40 open textbooks.
    We expect to save students 3 to 5x times the investment of $1M by government.
    Students like that idea.
  • There are many open textbook projects underway.
    Each uses a Creatiev Commosn licenses, so that means the textbooks they produce will be available to world, for free.
  • Some savings.
  • My own organization has a digital library that shares hundreds of courses that have been funded by our government.
    My government has invested over $11M since 2003 to create open course materials that our higher education faculty create and share with colleagues.
