The high cost of textbooks adds to the financial burden on students and their parents. Hear how one library looked for ways to encourage faculty to adopt open textbooks for their courses and launched the Wise Open Textbook Initiative, offering faculty a stipend of up to $5,000 to develop or adopt an OER alternatives to the traditional textbook. This workshop offers insights gained from their experience working with faculty, the production process, and developing OERx, a textbook delivery system built with Modx. It shares successes and challenges launching the initiative, working with faculty, and producing the final OER textbooks and includes a demonstration, training, and downloading OERx, an open educational resource distribution system.
