Zero Cost Assessment
The infrastructure and funding for open textbook creation has been years in the making, as is evidenced by the numerous open repositories and referatories that ‘reference’ them (e.g., Open Textbook Library, OASIS, and MOM).
Ancillaries, on the other hand, have been a bit slower to gain steam. This gap is lessening, though. Projects like The Ohio State University Content Camp and OpenStax Creator Fest have begun to pull together funding to host events that receive faculty from a wide-range of universities with the main goal of creating openly-licensed supplementary materials.
The resources below should hopefully provide you with a good basis to get your faculty moving in the right direction in terms of exploring, finding, and possibly creating their own supplemental content.
