SERIES: Open Textbook Challenge

You've heard about open textbooks, but do you really know what that means or what options are out there? For starters, though many open texts are free, open is not equal to free. In this session, we'll explore the “5R permissions” associated with open texts that allow you to tailor content to your needs. We’ll also explore an array of open textbook options and sources to demonstrate what’s out there and how these textbooks look and function.
