The price of textbooks has increased 22% over the last four years and in a recent survey 70% of students reported not buying a textbook due to price, despite 78% believing they would do worse in the course without the textbook(s) (Allen 2011). Open educational resources (OER) provide free or lower cost alternatives to textbooks, and OER are increasingly being developed and made available for use. This demonstration will show and example of an OER, the Kansas State University Human Nutrition (HN 400) Flexbook (goo.gl/vOAnR) made in Google Docs. For more information on what the flexbook is, how it was developed, as well as students’ perceptions of it, come see me at my demonstration or see this recent article on it (goog.gl/a6crL).
