This straight-forward interview contains few surprises but is a good snapshot of the OER initiative at the University System of Georgia (USG) "to promote student success by supporting the implementation of affordable alternatives to expensive commercial textbooks, particularly Open Educational Resources (OER) and open textbooks." There's some data on impact ( 200,000 students saved more than $31 million to date), links to some comparable initiatives, and links to some funded projects (in total, there are 170 projects that have been completed and 60 in progress).
