Atara MacNamara has gone out of her way to dive into the world of Open Educational Resources (OER). Yup – the idea that there are good textbooks out there that are free or at very low cost for our students.
Atara went to Flat World Knowledge, one of many sources for OERs. She found a psychology book and arranged to get a free (desk) copy. If she decides this is a good book for her student, she can make her own version of the book if she wants. Here is the book she’s looking at.
She can make the book available for her students in many formats:
Online – FREE
PDF – FREE
Printed version from Flat World – at a very reasonable cost
Or even a printed version from our college bookstore!
Way to explore money saving options for our students!
