Univ. of Minnesota compiles database of peer-reviewed, open-acces textbooks

BigVig209 writes "Univ. of MN is cataloging open-access textbooks and enticing faculty to review the texts by offering $500 per review. Despite the author calling the open-source rather than open-access, this may be the first time a land-grant, public university makes this kind of resource available to faculty and students."

Why doesn't IBM, MIT and NSA make math textbooks? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 2 years ago | (#39956295)

Just to name 3 entities that have a huge demand for math minds. They should create textbooks and videos for khan academy equivalent that explains math so it is understandable and exciting. I know MIT is putting college courses online. The need here is for kids just out of diapers through HS.
