  • I’m Una Daly, Community College Outreach Director at OpenCourseWare Consortium. I am truly honored to be invited to Ohio and kick off your Textbook Affordability Summit. Ohio has long been a leader in innovative education from OhioLink to Ohio Digital Bookshelf and Scaffold to the Stars. I have had the pleasure of working with both Danielle Budzick on an open textbook project here at Cuyahoga Tri-City College and cheering on your Scaffold to the Stars run by the Ohio Digital Bookshelf.
  • The Open Course Library is a collection of expertly developed educational materials – including textbooks, syllabi, course activities, readings, and assessments – for 81 high-enrollment college courses. 42 courses have been completed so far, providing faculty with a high-quality option that will cost students no more than $30 per course.
  • What about something small – local? Do open policies make sense on a smaller scale?Even one open textbook for a top 100 course makes sense.But WA should (a) ask if anyone else has already done this and openly licensed it (e.g., CK12), (b) alert other states / countries that it is going to make this investment and share.
  • Siyavula means “we are opening”
  • Collaborative Statistics co-author – my open textbook is better because of all the feedback that I have received from other instructors.
