Work is underway to adapt more open textbooks for use by students and instructors in B.C. with a call for proposals underway to begin the second phase of the project.
The project will ultimately see 40 open textbooks available for students and instructors in highly enrolled first- and second-year subject areas.
The first phase involved faculty reviews of 15 open textbooks, in subject areas ranging from math and chemistry to marketing, psychology, and business.
Those 15 open textbooks and the reviews are now available free online for students and instructors.
