  • Faculty Perspective - Third Semester Teaching Using Flat WorldTechnology/eLearning Course Design Perspective - Integrating into Bb- Technology consults- Course design integration considerationsTextbook Affordability Taskforce Chair- Managing Flat World pilot faculty- College-wide strategic planning efforts
  • Adoption Spring semester 2011 – present- First in Buss Comm groupEasy seamless adoption and customizationEasy to use Moved content around – for example, Text, Email and Netiquette
  • Original Adoption – No supplemental resources for instructor or students, now they are availableInstructor sharing also now available Haven’t used the quizzes (I had already written my own – but other instructors have found helpful)Students can easily get up and runningOutcomes more successful Average grades increased in my particular course (from previous term without textbook)Due to multiple reasons – integration of other OER and changing focus of teaching, project-based Students Surveys – Last Semester100% agreed easy to view100% provided a high quality of content (in comparison to other textbooks I've used in the past)
  • Course Production SpecialistAssisting FW faculty in modifications, Movement to integration OER into coursesApplication for Grant Opportunity with Business Communication instructors Focus on outcomes, objectives, and alignmentUsing modification tools in FW to align with Tri-C objectives Supplementing “missing parts” with our own modifications, or other OER
  • FW Pilot started as part of an initiative out of state of Ohio Chancellor Petro now asked for all schools to create Plan for Textbook Affordability – Dec. 1stTri-C’s EffortsFW pilot Exploring OER for Spring Sample CoursesTextbook Affordability Summit – all stakeholders involved (date TBA)
  • Stakeholders are vast across institutionsSUMMIT meeting (more info coming soon!!)

    • 1. Open Textbooks: Research Findings onAffordability, Acceptance, Accessibili ty and Learning Outcomes Deone Zell, California State University, Northridge Stephen R. Acker, Ohio State University Danielle Budzick, Cuyahoga Community College Jeff Shelstad, Flat World Knowledge Sloan-C International Conference on Online Learning Orlando, Florida 2011
    • 2. Deone Zell, Ph.D. Director, Faculty Technology CenterProfessor, Department of Management California State University, Northridge
    • 3. Overview• Affordability – What’s the cost benefit to students?• Acceptance – What’s the faculty decision-making process?• Accessibility – Can they be read on multiple devices?• Learning Outcomes – What’s their impact on learning?
    • 4. OER Factors Affecting Decision ProcessNot free <-----------------------------> FreeHard to find <-----------------------------> FindableNot vetted <-----------------------------> Vetted (top quality)Not able to rate <-----------------------------> Able to ratePiecemeal (classroom exhaust) <-----------------------------> IntegratedHard or impossible to modify <-----------------------------> Easy to modifyNo embedded assessment <-----------------------------> Embedded assessmentSingle format <-----------------------------> Multiple formats (PDF, ePUB, Mobi)Cant mark up <-----------------------------> Can mark up (annotate, highlight)No social note-taking <-----------------------------> Social note-takingNo impact on learning <-----------------------------> Positive impact on learning
    • 5. Affordability Before Now Quality is equivalent Save $171 per person$206.67 $34.95 •Saved >$100,000 per semester (680 students)
    • 6. What’s the Relationship Between All of These?

    • 22. What Did Students Choose? Bought print book 31% Bought pieces (PDF chapters, study guides) 64% 5% Didnt buy book
    • 23. Learning Outcomes Final Percentage in Class 89 89 88 Difference was statistically 87 significant even after we controlled for incoming GPACourse Percentage 86 85 85 84 83 82 Purchased Print (n=203) Didnt Purchase Print (n=427)
    • 24. Possible Explanations 1. “Free” might translate to less effort 2. Marking-up and note-taking not the same yet 3. Studying on devices presents more distractions 4. Can’t “see and feel” accomplishmentsThis may change when fully interactive e-books arrive on the scene

    • 42. Why We Are Doing What We Do!“Not having to worry about how I am going to afford books takes an enormous amount of pressure off of my back, thus allowing me the leisure of concentrating more on my studies.” “I like the convenience the e-book provides. Its nice to know that I can go to my parents or a friends house and complete my homework right from their house without having to double back for my book.” “I purchased the book online. It seems I set at my computer ALL day long and it is nice to be able to take the book and get away from the computer for a while. It still saved me money, so I am happy.” “I am a single mother of two small children and need every dollar I can get. Having this low-cost alternative is a great help and puts less strain on me.”
