This is fabulous. Cable Green writes, "On Monday, the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC) released the first 42 of the state’s high-enrollment 81 Open Course Library courses." Of particular interest to me: Introduction to Logic. "The remaining 39 courses will be finished by 2013." The courses have been released in a variety of formats, including Common Cartridge exports, guest login to preview, or HTML downloads (PDF, ePub, XML). Textbooks, like this Pre-Calculus text, are able available as PDF or MS-Word Docs. This is the beginning of the end for expensive course content.
