Article Alert: Free online textbooks?

Posted by Cathy Kelley on April 25, 2008

A short article in today’s Chronicle of Higher Education describes a company that will start publishing free online textbooks next year:

Rampell, C. (2008). An Online Company Tries an Unexpected Publishing Model: Free Textbooks. The Chronicle of Higher Education, April 24 2008. http://chronicle.com/free/2008/04/2614n.htm

What do you think? Would you consider using a free online text in order to save students money?
