SCALE - For Faculty

Textbooks are expensive. Over the past decade the cost of textbooks has increased at four times the rate of inflation, causing avoidable financial hardships and contributing to lowered academic performance for students. The use of high quality low and no-cost learning materials can help to remove the burden of expensive textbooks for students.

What Are the Benefits of Affordable Learning?

  • Materials are available first day of class.
  • Student retention
  • Students using OERs do just as well, if not better, than those using publisher textbooks.
