Commentary by Stephen Downes

From Metafilter: "The University of Minnesota recently announced that its College of Education and Human Development has created a searchable that are reviewed by U of M faculty. The books must be Openly Licensed, complete (not a draft version of the text, or a collection of lecture notes), suitable for use outside of the author's institution, and available in print for a reasonable price, generally less than $40 USD. This site differs from other collections of open textbooks in that it is developed and supported by a well known and respected university. University of Minnesota faculty will be paid $500 to write a review of an open-source textbook, the same amount they earn to adopt such a book in class."
