Frequently Asked Questions
Information on Rights of use may be found in its own section. Additional information about OpenIntro may be found at our Blog. Statistics questions may be posted in the Public Forums.
How are OpenIntro paperbacks priced?
Paperbacks are sold royalty-free: 100% of the sale price goes to CreateSpace and Amazon to cover printing, listing, selling, and distribution costs.
How are resources tested?
The textbook and other resources have been tested by a wide range of instructors. For example, OpenIntro Statistics has been used at over a dozen distinct colleges, from courses at Edmonds Community College in Washington to Princeton University in New Jersey to the Indian Institute of Management in Ahmedabad, India. The feedback we've received from both students and teachers help us constantly improve the textbook and our other resources.
How is OpenIntro different?
Innovation is often driven by enthusiasm, not money. Our staff has volunteered thousands of hours to develop the best resources and make them available for free. It is our mission to make educational materials available and accessible to everyone. We believe this is why OpenIntro has been a success: teachers can relate to our values, they recognize our high standards, and they enjoy knowing every student in their classroom can access and afford the course materials.
If you are unsure whether a free product can compete, try it out. You won't be forcing your students to pay anything extra if you experiment with a free resource.
How can I contribute?
There are many ways to get involved or support the movement.
1. Use open-source resources, and provide feedback to help those resources improve.
2. Be an advocate for open-source resources. Let other people know that open-source resources offer benefits over expensive alternatives: free and perpetual access for all students before, during, and after the course.
3. If you are interested in becoming actively involved, send one of our staff members an email to introduce yourself. We're always looking expand OpenIntro to include new people, projects, and ideas.
Sincerely Yours,
OpenIntro
