Ohio is lowering the cost of course materials for its college students.

Date: March 6th, 2018
Time: 10:00 - 11:30 a.m.

Join OhioLINK and the Ohio Department of Higher Education for a discussion on textbook affordability and open educational resources, led by an esteemed panel of experts, practitioners, and students from around the state. Topics to be covered include ongoing grant activities, academic freedom and choice, inclusive access, and commercial textbooks.
We’ll share how Ohio is leading the way on the issue of affordability and open educational resources, outline current initiatives in the state, answer audience questions, and we’ll make some exciting announcements of our own. We hope you’ll join us.
