The mission of the open textbook project is to develop openly

copyrighted (copylefted) textbooks using the free software

development model. The books, developed collaboratively, would

be freely available to download, modify, print and distribute.


Not only are textbooks unavailable to a great number of students in

the US and abroad simply due to cost, few textbooks are universally

suitable for courses in any given subject and many are simply

sub-standard. The Open Textbook Project aims to address these issues

by using a collaborative development model which has
proven its

effectiveness in the world of free software.


Development has begun!

We are currently working on the website and the interactive tools

with which individual textbook projects will be developed. We'll make

a more formal announcement when there is more ware and less vapor.
