Open educational materials replace all undergraduate textbooks at the University of Maryland University College

UMUC announces that they have replaced all undergraduate textbooks with OER and other no-cost (to students) digital resources for this Fall semester.  By Fall 2016, graduate materials will also be cost-free to students.  This move was to save students money but also to change teaching to avoid relying on materials locked away in static textbooks.  Read, http://www.umuc.edu/globalmedia/embedded-digital-resources.cfm .

We can do this at the University of Hawaii–contact oer@hawaii.edu to discuss further.
