Tony Bates on the Status of Open Textbook Adoption

5 lessons learned by Tony Bates at a recent Open Textbook Summit:

  1. Open Textbooks are gaining momentum
  2. There is a clear need for open textbooks
  3. The supply and demand from students is coming, but where is the adoption by faculty? – faculty, at least in universities, seem to be a barrier to adoption
    Stephen Downes had a few comments about this (here too)
  4. Open textbooks have their own pedagogy
  5. The technology is still crude
There is a clear need for open textbooks.
1. Open textbooks are gaining momentum.
