The Department of Education is accepting applications through July 25, 2022, for the Open Textbook Pilot Grant, which supports projects at eligible institutions of higher education to create new open textbooks and expand the use of open textbooks and course materials. WCET and NCOER hosted a conversation with Josh Halpern of LibreTexts, the 2018 awardee of the Open Textbook Pilot Grant, that provided an overview of the grant process, LibreTexts’ free, open, online materials, and how using them can help students save money and increase access.
