This is just for CSU, correct?
So are all sections of a course e.g. PSYC 100 reported on one row?
Sounds like good changes on this spreadsheet.
Do we calculate the savings off of the "before AL$ grant" adoption type as opposed to the new book price?
we want to reflect as much as possible the price to the student
so I'd say whatever best reflects true 'student' cost savings
This is why having good lines of communication with us bookstore folks is important ;-).
To follow up with that question, if we are tracking a course that first adopted OER 4 years ago, the "old" textbook may have cost $150 at that time, but may now be $180. Should we be adjusting that "old" price each year to reflect current price of that textbook?
Yes, impossible. Thank you.

You answered the question. My biggest concern was that we are now identifying various adoption types in the "before AL$ grant" section. With that being the case, I wanted to make sure we are still to measure against NEW for this report. Thanks.
Congratulations Delmar & LibreTexts.org!
Congrats to Antonio Lopez, librarian at Sacramento City College, who will be leading the effort of 55 faculty in the Los Rios Community College District, as a sub-awardee of Delmar's grant.
Delmar, if a project is already working in Pressbooks or with Reebus, would collaboration with you be redundant? How would LibreTexts fit with existing projects in Pressbooks or Reebus?
James: Mostly, yes. Our platform is "competative" to Pressbooks although a bit more powerful. Having access to the entire OER portfolio will enable the a supped cooperative construction. This is enabled by the wiki-ly approach of our platform.
Thanks, Delmar. I'll be in touch.
please do so. We love to work with people...
Thank you, Delmar
Can anyone help me (in CSU) with approach to take with Provost about importance of this program. I am only one leading this (voluntarily) from CSU CHICO and will retire in May.
Hi Laura. Great question. Let's chat about that.
Do you have a team or help? Or are you the only ALS person
I will get your email out to the group. Thank you so much, Jinan!
Board of Trustees
Great idea, thank you.
Another way to get the attention of administrators is to get the support of students
For example, an OER resolution from the student government
Try to connect this work to other student success and/or student equity initiatives/advocates
Are these VitalSource versions free and available to anyone who goes there?
Or does it require some kind of adoption or anything?
need to create an account
They are posted now on the AL$ website http://csuaffordablelearningsolutions.org/interactive_opentextbook
Students can do it independently?
Can the FAQ sheet be shared for other schools to use as an example?
Yes, Shelli, absolutely
Great! We would love that
The VitalSource textbooks do have a low cost for each title. There is no faculty adoption required for students to purchase the books.
so if a new textbook is $120, but there is a rental for $39, that would qualify for the LCCM icon, correct?
Noelia Franzen, SSU
We'll add the FAQ to the deck and share when the recording goes out to listserv.
VitalSource requires purchasers and adopters to sign-up and into their bookshelf program.
For us we decided LTC must be for purchase price
MiraCosta details on what we said qualifies as ZTC or LTC here: http://www.miracosta.edu/instruction/oer/downloads/ZTCClarification-LTCDesignation_001.pdf
We are phasing out physical clickers
Wouldn’t it be nice for the CSU To provide free clickers to all students?
yes. They are too expensive. 65 bucks at our bookstore and 35 to rent
iClicker Cloud could be contracted for full CSU much cheaper!
yes. We use the cloud version at 14.99 for students
Better than nothing
The question is who provides the ongoing funding?
We also do Poll Everywhere for Free to students
So, we get courses to Zero cost by them switching to PE
Cherie that only works for small enough classes, right?
I will check out PE. Thanks
We have a campus license

Ah so campus is covering the cost, nice
Kahoot is also free to everyone and can be used for quizzes or feedback.
We got a good deal for unlimited since we were the first CSU with SDSU to pilot it
Angie Petty, SF State
Thanks so much for being here, everyone!
