New Report: Harnessing Openness to Improve Higher Education

November 10, 2009

The Digital Connections Council of the Committee for Economic Development (CED) just posted this 100 page report – Harnessing Openness to Improve Research, Teaching and Learning in Higher EducationSee pages 37 and 38 about open textbooks.  (Warning – this PDF is very large.)   One recommendation about textbooks is to “review the existing legal regime to determine what analog expectations about books should apply in the world of electronic texts to strike an appropriate balance between the rights of users and those of authors, publishers, and electronic book sellers.”

Read the summary of the report.

Read the press release.

CED is a non-profit, non-partisan organization of more than 200 business leaders and university presidents.
