R. Schroeder - BIOL 105: Principles of Biology - Faculty Showcase at HSU

This open textbook is being utilized in a biology course for undergraduate science major students by Roxann Schroeder, Ph.D. at Humboldt State University.  The open textbook provides the same structure and content as a traditional hard copy textbook but includes links to websites and interactive material that supplement the readings.  The main motivation to adopt an open textbook was cost - previous polls of my students showed that a significant number never bought the textbook due to the cost of the traditional hardcover text. Most students access the open textbook online or as a hard copy from the bookstore.
