Technology for the Educator

Every instructor has struggles with students getting a late start because of textbook prices. Today I would like to share a few resources I have collected for free and inexpensive textbook alternatives. There are a number of sites out there like Merlot (http://www.merlot.org/merlot/index.htm?action=find) and Open Stax (http://openstaxcollege.org/books) that have alternatives to the pricey traditional book publishers.

Although it may be too late to incorporate these resources into this semester, now is the time to start thinking about the future. If you are looking to design a new online class or substitutions to your current course offering, please check out this list alternative solutions for your classroom.
