Cost of textbooks in focus as universities launch pilot projects

“The fall semester is upon us, and that means one thing: It’s pilot project season for textbooks and their e-alternatives. Most students are stepping into their first class either this week or the next, and many of them will find themselves participating in their institution’s latest cost-saving experiment. In the name of student savings, institutions are testing everything from all-tablet learning to textbook rentals to open educational resources OER — though similar projects delivered mixed results last year.” (via Inside Higher Ed)
