OpenStax Moves Beyond OER, Announces $10 Online Learning Platform

Jul 12, 2017

OPENSTAX, a nonprofit out of Rice University that offers free online textbooks, is doing more than offering open educational resources these days. The organization is expanding with a learning system called OpenStax Tutor Beta, a platform that measures how students learn in order to offer individualized homework and tutoring.

The new tool costs $10 per student and is accessible through the OpenStax Tutor website. The first subjects to be available on the platform will be college-level physics, biology and sociology. Inside Higher Ed reports that the nonprofit plans to eventually expand to all subject areas.
