Kim Thanos wants to take down the textbook industry–Chronicle of Higher Ed

The Chronicle of Higher Education profiles Kim Thanos, Chief Executive of Lumen Learning.  She notes that faculty who  adopt open-access materials put class materials into students’ hands on the first day of class, and calls this  “a social-justice issue.”

Lumen Learning, in Portland, OR, was  founded in 2012 with David Wiley, (Wiley is one of the foremost advocates of Open Educational Resources). Lumen Learning  works with faculty to create courses with open  digital content.  Currently there are 60+ courses in Lumen Learning’s catalog.
