Initiatives: Open Educational Resources

Maryland Open Source Textbook Initiative

Open educational resources (OERs) are any openly licensed instructional materials that are also typically available at little or no cost. The term can include textbooks, course readings, and other learning content; simulations, games, and other learning applications; syllabi, quizzes, and assessment tools; and virtually any other material that can be used for instructional purposes. The Maryland Open Source Textbook (M.O.S.T.) initiative is open to all 2- and 4-year public higher education institutions in the state and  focuses on improving the affordability of education by significantly lowering textbook costs while, at the same time, improving student success by giving them access to high-quality, multimedia materials for study.

The Maryland Open Source Textbook (M.O.S.T.) initiative has saved students over $1.6 million in textbook costs since Spring 2014.
