As a college student, there are many expenses such as tuition, housing, and other fees. Textbooks tend to be a large expense for students. Typically, one semester’s textbook costs range from $500 to $1,000. Once the semester ends, students often sell their textbooks in exchange for a small fraction of the original costs. For example, I once purchased a textbook priced over $200 and received $20 in exchange at the end of the semester. I am (and I’m sure other students) delighted with the provision of low to no cost text books. In addition to affordable traditional textbooks, digital Open Education Resources (OER) will be low to no cost and also convenient due to online accessibility. Texts and class materials that are offered to students for download would be well appreciated considering today’s technological advancements and the prevalent usage of laptops, tablets, and other electronic devices by college students. With the use of low to no cost textbooks and OER, more students will be able to have their textbooks sooner for use. Although it is ideal that students have their textbooks during the first week of class, the reality is that many do not have their text until well after the start of class due to financial matters. For example, I didn’t receive a textbook that I ordered online until 3 weeks after the start of the semester. Textbooks are typically more affordable online; however one may have to go a considerable time without the material. Low to no cost textbooks and OER will definitely help to eradicate some of the financial strains of students face and provide efficient means of access to required material.
