Congratulations to the University of Cincinnati Psychology Students – Cheaper Textbook Alternatives

When I read this article this morning, a huge smile broke out and I said outloud, “Finally! Yahoo!”  I greatly appreciate UC’s efforts in thinking outside of the box.

UC Psychology Students to Present on Cheaper Textbook Alternatives at National Conference

A group of University of Cincinnati seniors in the psychology program will nationally present their comparison of educational technology alternatives to purchasing college textbooks that can run into hundreds of dollars per academic quarter. Their research as part of the statewide Ohio Digital Bookshelf Project will be presented on Monday, Feb. 14, at the national EDUCAUSE Annual Meeting in Washington, DC.

The Digital Bookshelf Project is an initiative under the University System of Ohio (USO) Strategic Plan for Higher Education to develop a high-quality, affordable, flexible system of higher education with a wide range of educational options. The Digital Bookshelf Project is exploring educational textbook alternatives including e-texts and other technology alternatives aimed at reducing student costs.
