Open Educational Resources


Rescue your students from high-priced textbooks.


Let’s face it. Your students are struggling to afford their education. On one hand, students need to purchase their textbooks if they want to succeed in their classes. On the other hand, they don’t want to still be paying for those textbooks when they’re sixty.

But what's the solution?

Educators around the world are joining forces to fight back against high-priced textbooks. They're writing open educational resources (OER) and releasing them under open licenses so educators and their students can access these materials for free.

We know what you are thinking…

If my students can access OER for free, why would I have them pay for a printed copy?

Simply put, it’s what your students want. In a survey led by Naomi Baron of American University, nearly 92% of students age 18-26 said they concentrated best when reading from a hard copy.1 Students stated that when reading eBooks they were more easily distracted and prone to headaches from eye strain.

Yeah, but wouldn’t it be cheaper for my students to print their own copies?

In most cases the answer is no. According to PC World, the average cost per page to print in black and white on an inkjet printer is between 7 and 8 cents per page, not including the price of paper.2 Our price per page even after the bookstore’s markup is 4.8 cents, and yes, that includes the paper. That’s savings your students can take to the bank!
