The California Open Educational Resources Council was created by ICAS, the Intersegmental Committee of the Academic Senates, to combine work being done on open educational resources by the California Community College, California State University and University of California systems. This survey is part of that work.
In case you are not familiar with how "open access textbooks" differ from other e-texts, here are some characteristics of Open Access Textbooks generally:
-- Can be viewed/read for no cost online
-- Are permanently available; do not expire
-- Can be self-printed with no restrictions
-- Can be ordered as bound print copies at costs below traditional texts
-- Can be modified/customized by faculty without special permission
For more information, please see: http://als.csuprojects.org/free-etextbooks
Your responses are anonymous and confidential.
You are not required to answer any of the questions, but we encourage you to respond to all of them, if you are able.
