IMHO: Most Excellent > P2PU Course > Adopting Open Textbooks



The course is a 3-step process to adopting open textbooks for educators facilitated by the College Open Textbook Collaborative.   The 3 major steps are discovering open educational materials and selecting appropriate ones based on the various criteria; secondly following an adoption process where you work with other stakeholders on your campus including students to promote a best-use model, and finally the third step is sharing your knowledge of discovery and adotion of open educational materials with others in your discipline, campus, or learning community.  The course can also be useful to self-learners or home schoolers who want to find high-quality open educational resources in their area of interest.

We will have weekly discussions on the p2pu course forum about important issues in the course.  We will also have bi-weekly live video conferences to share new discoveries and answer questions.

BTW: I will undertake a survey of select academic library efforts relating to the adoption, management, and promotion of Open Access Textbooks early next year > Stay Tuned >>>
