Learning on the Next Level - Lisa Gibson, Prairie Business

College professors and instructors are increasingly designing their courses using free online resources that allow tailored curriculums and reduced textbook expenses for students. During the spring 2016 semester, Valley City State University students saved an estimated $82,000 through an expansion of the school’s use of open educational resources (OERs) as a substitute for costly textbooks. About 600 students that semester participated in classes using OERs, almost half of the university’s total 1,400 enrollment, says Julee Russell, a VCSU English professor who uses OERs in her courses. http://www.prairiebusinessmagazine.com/magazine/current-issue/4086202-higher-education-learning-next-level
