A survey of North Dakota faculty shows most have heard of “open source educational materials” – textbooks and other things available on line at little or no charge.
“Open source” could save students a lot of money in textbooks.
Tanya Spilovoy is the director of distance education for the North Dakota University System. She’s heading the open source project in North Dakota.
"If you dig down a little bit further, they know all the details about it," Spilovoy said. "Our faculty have heard of it. It's a great start."
