This guide is intended for student Learning Force Teams and others who are creating Open Text possibilities for faculty to consider in the attempt to replace costly textbooks for their courses. The guide describes the steps to take in conducting this kind of search.
The textbook is a vestige of an earlier time in education when the only access to course material was in paper form. Those days are gone, and it is possible to gather educational texts from a variety of places and collect them in digital form for student use. Faculty can curate their course readings rather than require their students to purchase a text.
