A New Value Proposition for Open Textbooks

“Two recent events have highlighted advances in the adoption of Open Education Resources: the announcement from New York State about a new state-wide Open Textbook investment and a new partnership to “bring open course content to faculty members through the campus bookstore.”

Welcome as these new announcements are, and as much as we hope they represent a breakthrough on OER adoption… we’ve been predicting an imminent ‘tipping point’ for Open Educational Resources usage long enough to be a bit cautious. IHE’s Inside Digital Learning summarized last week how some of folks involved in OER for a long time viewed these developments, and these expert opinions reflected a diverse range of viewpoints in both the short and long term.”
