With higher education fees rising- books, tutition, students fees, etc – free or reduced cost books can be invaluable to those struggling to pay the bills. Recently I found a student-run site called Textbook Revolution, that focuses on finding free educational materials. More and more of these grassroots efforts are springing up online and offering alternate ways to obtain content.
According to the site:
“Textbook Revolution is a student-run site dedicated to increasing the use of free educational materials by teachers and professors. We want to get these materials into classrooms. On this site you’ll find links and reviews of textbooks and select educational resources. Some of the books are PDF files, others are viewable online as e-books, or some are simply web sites containing course or multimedia content.”
