XanEdu's OER team has specialized training to guide two- and four-year college faculty as well as K-12 educators through the many OER options.

  • Addressing Affordability

    Textbook costs have skyrocketed over the past decade, causing decreased accessibility by students who elect to not purchase the textbook or use an older edition. OER textbooks will always be free in digital formats and low cost in print.

  • Encouraging Sharing

    As open educational resources (OER), textbooks are designed to be shared with other programs with few restrictions. The content can freely be remixed by faculty and aligned to every colleges' curriculum and state requirements.

  • Staying Relevant

    It can also take several years for textbook editions to be updated with current, evidence-based practice. OER textbooks are easy to update as new evidence-based practices occur.

  • Offering OER Expert Assistance

    If you have questions on OER or how you can adopt and reuse these OER textbooks for your school's program, XanEdu is here to help.
