BCcampus’ creation of open textbooks for the 40 most popular first- and second-year subjects in the province’s public post-secondary system published in an easily accessible format online.

  • Selected texts made available for free online, or at a low-cost for printed versions, to instructors and their students.
  • Open textbooks for courses in arts, sciences, humanities and business are a way to significantly reduce student textbook costs while giving instructors the flexibility to reformat and customize their course material.
  • They are an affordable, flexible alternative to traditionally published textbooks.
  • The textbooks will be created (or, where possible, re-created from existing open educational resources) by faculty or publishers, reviewed by B.C. faculty and made available under a Creative Commons license.

Some facts about open textbooks can be found on the BCcampus website as well as a complete list of open textbook FAQs.

The B.C. Ministry of Advanced Education, Innovation and Technology funds the B.C. Open Textbook Program and BCcampus manages the Program.
