ICYMI: OpenStax COVID-19 efforts featured in edscoop

Edscoop recently highlighted OpenStax’s efforts to bring more tech tools online to accelerate and personalize education for college and university students. Edscoop noted:

“Using the tools, students and teachers are able to highlight and take notes in digital textbooks and make printable study guides to study offline if internet access is unreliable. And teachers can also collaborate with colleagues on online activities with OpenStax Community Hubs. … The organization’s work has not only saved 9 million students more than $830 million, according to the project, it’s also credited with helping to disrupt a publishing industry that’s now lowering textbook prices.”.
