Affordable and Open Educational Resources (A&OER): Fall 2019 Courses at ECC

Fall 2019 is a Pilot Project for A & OER Textbooks.   Select sections of courses are piloting the use of Affordable and Open Educational Resources instead of traditional hardcopy Textbooks.  We hope to expand this program to more courses and sections in the following semesters.

ECC Course with Free or Reduced Textbooks

These Fall 2019 sections of courses at East Central College are requiring textbook(s) that are affordable and/or open.  It may be an electronic online only option or have a printable option at a reduced cost.  Please pay special attention to the course section as not all sections require the same materials at this time.  Your course may also require texts, lab manual, etc that must be purchased in print.  These will also be included on this page and the new price listed, make your purchase at ECC Bookstore as there may be a used copy is available for purchase at a lower price.

Contact your course instructor if you have any questions about the textbook.  You will find their contact information in Moodle course page.
