"It’s popular to predict the death of the textbook—and these days even textbook providers seem eager to move away from their age-old publishing model. Perhaps we’re in the zombie phase of textbook publishing, when commercial texts are walking corpses that never get fully eradicated.

David Wiley, a pioneer of open education resources who co-founded Lumen Learning, a for-profit company that supports OER efforts, sees one place where textbooks could actually be vanquished by openly licensed alternatives: community colleges. In fact, that day may not be far off.

EdSurge sat down with Wiley earlier this month at the ASU+GSV Summit, as part of our Thought Leader Interview series on the future of education. Below is an edited and condensed version of the conversation, or watch the complete interview."
