Textbook Affordability, Open Textbooks, Digital Commons: Open Textbooks

Open Textbooks

George Fox University is a member of the Open Textbook Network along with over 600 active network campuses. 

"The Open Textbook Network (OTN) promotes access, affordability, and student success through the use of open textbooks.

We believe in the power of open education to transform higher education. Open textbooks not only contribute to student academic success, but also offer faculty the chance to reclaim their courses based on their expertise.

The leadership, actions, and results of our network members drive this transformation, and OTN connects these efforts to pool expertise and promote best practices."
