Adopting Open Textbooks Online Workshop: September 23 - October 18, 2013

There is a lot of buzz about open textbooks and the financial benefits to our students. However, many conversations and much learning needs to happen between now and realizing that goal. This online workshop will take the first steps in that direction.

- Week 1: What is Open? What is an Open Textbook?

- Week 2: Creative Commons Licenses

- Week 3: Replacement Readiness

- Week 4: Find and Evaluate Open Textbooks

We will also share experiences to gain insights into what we should be aware of when venturing into the use of OER.

Daniel Compton's insight:

Creative Commons ends the monopoly on student textbooks.
