Break Free from Overpriced Textbooks.
Open educational resources (OER) are taking higher education by storm. And rightly so. These free course materials can replace overpriced textbooks, saving your students a ton of money. We know what you are thinking…
If my students can access OER for free, why would I have them pay for a printed copy?
Simply put, it’s what your students want. In a survey led by Naomi Baron of American University, nearly 92% of students age 18-26 said they concentrated best when reading from a hard copy.1 Students stated that when reading eBooks they were more easily distracted and prone to headaches from eye strain.
Yeah, but wouldn’t it be cheaper for my students to print their own copies?
In most cases the answer is no. According to PC World, the average cost per page to print in black and white on an inkjet printer is between 7 and 8 cents per page, not including the price of paper.2 Our price per page even after the bookstore’s markup is 4.8 cents, and yes, that includes the paper. That’s savings your students can take to the bank!
The perfect look is about more than the print and finishing options you choose. Our in-house design team can create an eye-catching cover design that will get your book noticed. And even better, we throw in a custom cover design for free for OER titles!
