New “Zero Textbook Cost” option on CUNYFirst

Beginning in the Spring term, CUNYFirst will have the option to list courses as having “Zero Textbook Cost”. This was approved by the CUNY Registrar last week. This is a major step forward for OERs at CUNY! Professors using OERs now have a way to promote their hard work developing these texts, and students will have a way to select classes that they can afford.


Moreover, this will help promote further development of OERs: as students realize that zero cost textbooks are an option, they are probably going to push for more OER classes. This is an exciting time for OERs at CUNY!
