OER Pioneer OpenStax Launches Personalized Learning Tool for 3 Courses - Dian Schaffhauser, Campus Technology

The Rice University non-profit that has released almost two-dozen free textbooks into academia is beta-testing a new personalized learning system that works with its materials. OpenStax, which stated that it provides open educational resources to a million students each year, has been developing OpenStax Tutor for three years. The new service will be available this fall for three courses: college physics, biology and sociology. The tutoring service, which is available online, uses web-based OpenStax textbooks to deliver content, simulations, videos, "spaced" practice questions and instant feedback. https://campustechnology.com/articles/2017/07/12/oer-pioneer-openstax-launches-personalized-learning-tool-for-3-courses.aspx
