World Religions in America: An Introduction 3e

This free, online textbook is found at HippoCampus, so the book is indexed by topic, rather than using a table of contents. This makes it a little harder to access than the normal textbook. Some of the textbook content is written text, while other parts are multi-media.

“HippoCampus is a project of the Monterey Institute for Technology and Education (MITE). The goal of HippoCampus is to provide high-quality, multimedia content on general education subjects to high school and college students free of charge. HippoCampus was designed as part of Open Education Resources (OER), a worldwide effort to improve access to quality education for everyone.”

This seems like a potential resource especially valuable for online and hybrid courses. Provides "lecture" material or alternative or supplement to a traditional textbook. In addition to the videos, click "Lauch a Course" at the top to access discussion questions and other resource for each "chapter". Also provides "Textbook correlations" to help match up the videos with content from other popular world's religions textbooks.
