College Shares Zero-Textbook-Cost Courses

November 17, 2015

The community college, with help from open-courseware provider Lumen Learning, on Monday made nine of its courses available under a Creative Commons license, meaning instructors at other institutions are free to reuse and repurpose the content.

Lumen Learning and NOVA plan to release a total of 24 courses.
