Open Source Textbooks for Learning Management Systems
Are you looking for course materials to host on a learning management system? Consider free, open-source textbooks. Organizations like Flat World Knowledge-make finding learning materials for student learning management systems simple and cost-effective.
Textbook prices are indeed ludicrous. According to a 2005 report by the Government Accountability Office, textbook prices have outpaced inflation 2-to-1 in the past two decades. And textbook expenses account for 26% of tuition and fees at four-year public universities and nearly three-quarters of costs at community colleges.
Although pickings may be on the slim side for open-source textbooks right now, the movement is in its early stages. Supporting open source products will contribute to the evolution and proliferation of free textbooks for learning management systems.
