BC invests $3.26M in open educational resources

May 1, 2019

The Government of British Columbia has injected $3.26M in funding for open educational resources. A release states that open textbooks have no royalty fee structure and use an open copyright license that allows instructors to modify and adapt teaching and learning materials to fit the unique needs of their students and courses. The funding will primarily be used to support free access to an open-source homework system and zed creds—programs of study with no textbook costs—in early childhood education, STEM, trades, health, and business courses. BCCampus (BC)
