Tuesday, March 22nd 2:00 PM EDT Find out how to transform a textbook and the positive impact open educational resources (OERs) have on student’s retention, completion, satisfaction, success and their wallets! After being awarded the Textbook Transformation Grant, Dr. Tamara Powell and four other faculty members at Kennesaw State University created a free, open textbook for their students. The textbook is online and interactive, created using SoftChalk and is available anywhere for anyone in the world to use. Just by using this textbook in their classrooms, Dr. Powell and faculty are saving their students $55,000 from the student debt load each year, and you could too! More success means faster graduation, fewer student loans and less student debt. Register now to learn more. Still not convinced? Check out the savings that Kennesaw State University has had for all of their students over the past year transforming their textbooks. We look forward to seeing you at the webinar!
