Open source text books in Cali

As we have mentioned before we are in favor of open source text books, and it looks like the state of California is too. This is a bold step that is surely going to be a win for students, since no one seems to be able to control the cost of tuition…

Friday, the California State Senate unanimously passed the first of its kind open educational resource digital library, or (OER), offering students free access to textbooks in the most commonly taken lower-division courses at public postsecondary institutions.
