Connexions Work Mentioned in NY Times Editorial

2008-05-01

A recent New York Times editorial cites the rising cost of textbooks and calls for universities to adopt innovative new methods for lowering book costs for students. Rice University's efforts to provide texts through Connexions for some of its courses is cited as an example of the new kind of institutional thinking called for by the article. These courses, such as "Concept Development Studies in Chemistry" and "Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering I", are available free online and at very low-cost as printed, bound books available through print-on-demand publishing.
