Open Textbooks for Post-Secondary Students

Post-secondary students and instructors in B.C. will be able to access more than 120 open textbooks as dozens of new skills training titles hit digital shelves this fall. “Students and instructors will benefit from the addition of 50 new open textbooks covering subject areas such as adult basic education, culinary arts and introductory courses for trades training,” said Wilkinson. “Increasing access to open textbooks means more money in student pockets, more flexibility for instructors and greater versatility in learning materials.”
