Open Textbook TEDx Talks

David Ernst, CEHD Chief Information Office, is also the Director of the Center for Open Education and the Executive Director of the Open Textbook Network. Both organizations work for the advancement of open textbooks in higher education. Open textbooks are created and released under license to be freely used, modified, and distributed. The Open Textbook Library is a project of the Center for Open Education. With it you can search, view, and download peer-reviewed open textbooks.

David gives us all plenty to think about in two TEDx talks about open textbooks and access to knowledge/information in higher education. Watch. Listen. Be challenged and inspired!
