KU is an active member of the Open Textbook Network (OTN). We're one year into a two year pilot OER Grant program to support the adoption, adaptation, and creation of OER at KU. There's a well-established library publishing program which has published one open textbook and plans to support more as they arise. We were just selected to participate in the OpenStax Institutional Partner Program. A working group is expecting a charge from the Provost to explore and implement strategies for greater OER adoption. At present, we estimate savings at KU as a result of OER use at over $100,000.
