Subject:Re: open source/low cost teaching materials

Hi Peter. I have used alternative materials for classes. The students (and I) enjoyed it. I was able to select materials that enhanced class lecture and promoted rich dialogue. Some of the materials provided perspectives that may not have been covered in a text.

Also, for very low-cost text books, just use an older edition. If the current edition is the 8th, then specify the 6th or the 7th. Students can order it through Textbooks.com or Amazon and typically get the book for $5 or less. Not that much is really changed from one edition to the next and for students on a very limited budget, it really helps.
