Support the development, adaptation, and use of open textbooks
MIT should support the development, adaptation, and use of open textbooks. Faculty need resources (summer salary, assistants, etc.) to develop open access textbooks. For subjects where there are already open textbooks, faculty might need resources to adapt the textbooks for MIT classes and to develop syllabi that make optimal use of open textbooks.
Our students spend way too much money for closed access textbooks. Also, it is hard to adapt such textbooks for use at MIT. Open access textbooks, especially those with a liberal license, are easier to adapt and cost our students nothing.
