Find, Author and Share Open Textbooks

January 12, 2011

The open and free online course: “Find, Author, and Share Open Textbooks” course will soon be available through Peer-to-Peer University. The course runs from January 26 through March 9. Enrollment starts January 12. Sign up now for all the spaces are gone!

At a time when commercial textbook prices are soaring and a fundamental shift in the way we access and create information has occurred, why not consider using or authoring an open textbook? We will learn how to find and adopt high-quality openly licensed textbooks and educational resources in this participatory class. Open licensing means that you can freely incorporate open resources into a textbook that meets the needs of learners in your course and provide re-usable resources for other educators.

Sign-ups start January 12. Click here and scroll down to the “Find, Author, and Share Open Textbooks” course and select the button to complete. If you have not taken a Peer-to-Peer-University (P2PU) course before, you will have to create a new free account first.
