What are Experts Saying?
It's amazing to have free access to so much quality content from experts in the field. I use these books and articles in all of my classes, and students never have to pay a cent.
This platform has had a profound influence on our field. I hope that everyone will continue to contribute to this platform and replace these high-cost textbooks.
The Edtech Books platform is the reason I got interested in designing OER eBooks. I was hesitant to design OER eBooks when I first started looking for platforms and found that most were not user-friendly, interactive, or visually appealing. Edtech Books allows you to create beautiful, visually appealing, interactive eBooks with ease. My undergraduate students, graduate students, and I have co-authored multiple eBooks on this site. I also love that the platform designer, Dr. Royce Kimmons, continues to expand the capabilities of the platform, so new features are being added often. I give this site my highest recommendation for OERs!!
We have sought to create a multimodal book experience with text, images, interactive links, cross-links, audio introductions, and videos introducing learning activities. This has been one of the great joys of EdTechBooks: the ways we can generate different ways for students and teachers to interact with ideas and information.
The K-12 Educational Technology Handbook and the K-12 Blended Teaching Guide have been indispensable in my instructional technology courses. Each semester, my students thank me for these high quality resources that they don't have to pay for.
