  • Open Textbooks: The Billion Dollar Solution | INPIRG
    report analyzes the potential of open textbooks and open licensing to become that alternative In brief open textbooks are faculty written peer reviewed textbooks that are published under an open license meaning that they are available free online they are free to download and print copies are available at 10 40 or approximately the cost of printing This report reviews data collected from five different campus based pilot programs that encouraged faculty to replace the traditional textbook for their course with openly licensed educational resources OER and open textbooks Findings Analysis of these pilots determines that a student saves 128 per course when their traditionally published textbook is replaced with an open textbook By extrapolating average student savings and applying it to larger segments of the student population we can predict that open textbooks have the potential to save more than a billion dollars each year Additionally by comparing total investment and money spent during these pilots with the total savings by students as a result of the project we can conclude that investing in open textbooks has an exponential return on investment in student savings Recommendation Institutions and all stakeholders in higher education should take greater ownership over solving the problem of high textbook prices and can do so effectively by providing the training and resources faculty need to convert their classroom to an open textbook Related issues Make Textbooks Affordable About Us Our Leadership Our Mission Accomplishments IU Chapter Get Involved Action Center Campaign Resources Start a PIRG Chapter Full Time Jobs Campus Internships Volunteer on Campus Campaigns 21st Century Transportation Affordable Higher Education Democracy Hunger and Homelessness Make Textbooks Affordable New Voters Project Stop Subsidizing Obesity Student Consumer Action Network Sustainable U Newsroom Latest Updates Blog News Releases PIRG in the News Reports Internships Work on important
