BC moves forward with free online textbooks initiative

April 9, 2013

Textbooks for some of the most popular first- and second-year PSE subject areas in BC are expected online by September. Last fall, the province announced the move to become the first Canadian province to offer students free online, open textbooks for the 40 most popular subject areas. Those subjects have now been identified and the project will move to a phased implementation that will result in 10 to 20 of the open textbooks available online by this fall. BC News Release
