Utah Office of Ed Initiative Develops Open Textbooks

Diana Suddreth is the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, or STEM Coordinator with the Utah State Office of Education. She said the USOE has a plan to create open source textbooks.

Open source textbooks have all open-access information and are being developed by a new initiative.

Teachers will  have online textbooks available, with all the online access of the web, or print.

They'll be printable for $5 a piece. This way, each year the district has the opportunity to update them immediately.
