Affordable Cost for Course Materials: 10,000 Washington Community & Technical College Students Have Spoken

Two exciting webinars that tell a story about system’s OER work!

What do college students believe is a reasonable cost for class materials? How does the cost of the materials affect them? What recommendations do they have for improving textbook affordability?  SBCTC and WACTCSA have partnered to conduct a survey to (1) gauge students’ threshold of what is considered low cost for course materials, (2) explore the influence of course materials costs on student enrollment decisions, and (3) identify student recommendations  to improve the affordability of course materials.
