OER: Open Educational Resources: Open Textbook Collections

Why Open Textbooks?

Open textbooks come in a variety of downloadable formats (PDF, ePub, .xml, .docx) and can be printed and bound inexpensively for students preferring a hard copy.  The CC licenses attached to these books give faculty the freedom to pick and choose the parts of a book(s) that he/she feels will best help students achieve the course learning outcomes.
