courses. Do these books that any
ancillaries?
I want to write a textbook but why
would I give it away for free when I
could make money off of it?
Just a few
reminders
Beware of
demonizing!

  91. 91. Strategies for Answering Hard Questions about Open Textbooks
  92. 92. Let’s try that again! • Watch the pair respond to a FAQ on open textbooks. – What outcomes would you expect from this interaction? – How could we change this interaction for different results?
  93. 93. I hear these books aren’t any good. Is the quality the same as other textbooks?
  94. 94. How am I supposed to find time to adopt an open textbook?
  95. 95. I rely on ancillary content in my courses. Do these books that any ancillaries?
  96. 96. I want to write a textbook but why would I give it away for free when I could make money off of it?
  97. 97. Just a few reminders
  98. 98. Beware of demonizing! https://www.flickr.com/photos/post406/242630595
  99. 99. Acknowledge questions and concerns.
