Don Gorges Don Gorges __A very compelling point was made here when Nicole Allen commented ” I AM saying [$1200] is the best statistic to answer the question that people are *really* asking when they ask that question: “What statistic best represents the per student financial impact of textbooks?” The answer to that question can literally shape policy decisions, which is why advocates like me are attracted to posts like this and give political answers to apolitical questions.” less 3d ago

Don Gorges Don Gorges __It’s interesting to think of Financial Aid economics and of the even greater policy impact of re-assigning some of the $Billions in Gift Aid Funding – free money – received in Students’ Financial Aid Package to fund Faculty-backed creation of course materials freely available to enrolled Students. – “1 Million Students Saved $1 Billion” is a scalable replacement for “$1200” as the strategic keynote – better statistics for policymakers. less 3d ago

You

 

Don Gorges

Don Gorges __Thanks Tony, I opened my pdf copy to see what you mean _ you’re asking “is it good enough?” _ I’d say Yes, ’cause I’d like to agree with your wife and friend __ but Teaching in a Digital Age might be cited as “a high quality benchmark” and it’s great you’re asking everyone for their perspectives. I’m not a Teacher in your audience, my perspective focuses on creative communications with Open Design and the ways Visual Communications is used to enhance the Teacher’s & Student’s experience, a perspective that places the highest value on a Student’s time using the materials. less 4d ago

Don Gorges __Meeting Standard Textbook Quality is as fundamental as well drawn technical artwork that is 100% accurate – and this issue, ‘fit’ frames to images – See sub-par example recently found, a Microsoft Office Mix of an 8th Grade Math lesson on Pythagorean Theorem – Teacher created shareable content which is not of Standard Textbook Quality and not fit for purpose in all 8th Grade Math classes – a Microsoft Office Mix _ https://mix.office.com/watch/37gcrbrmsqg1 _ less 4d ago

Don Gorges

Don Gorges __I’d advise getting useful feedback by organizing a peer review via BCcampus review process-rubric for the online HTML version with a scrolling single page layout and I’d suggest that you arrange for a print book format pdf that is designed specifically in 2 page Readers’ Spreads. Arrange Hewlett Funding for design via Open Cohort Wiley-Bliss connections. All the best Tony. less 4d ago

Tony Bates

Tony Bates Many thanks for these very helpful comments, Don. I have been talking to BCcampus about this, and will pass on your suggestion regarding Hewlett funding. Any other comments from those with graphic design experience? 4d ago

Don Gorges Don Gorges __“Each of the content developers announced today [see links] has an excellent track record in building quality educational content tied to state standards,” said Jennifer Wolfe, Partner at The Learning Accelerator and Project Director for the K-12 OER Collaborative. “We believe that the materials they are creating will be judged by educators as superior to much of what they are using now on many dimensions, including, but by no means limited to, their cost.” less 9d ago
