  • OER vs. Commercial Textbooks

    OER has several advantages over traditional commercial textbooks. 

    • No or low cost for students eliminating problem of students struggling without textbook
    • Free yourself from the curse of the new edition cycles. OER is updated but to make content better, no shuffling of section numbers to eliminate a used book market!
    • Textbook is retained after the end of the course
