"Georgia Highlands College has saved students over $6 million by eliminating textbook costs and providing free digital options.
GHC’s faculty have been working since fall 2015 to expand Open Education Resources (OER) courses each semester.
OER course conversions are aided by the University System of Georgia’s Affordable Learning Georgia (ALG) initiative which promotes student success by providing cost-free alternatives to expensive textbooks.
