Textbook Revolution is the web’s source for free educational materials. This is a student-run, volunteer-operated website started in response to the textbook industry’s constant drive to maximize profits instead of educational value.
TBR exists for two reasons. First, it offers one-stop shopping for students and teachers looking for free textbooks and related materials. Second, it promotes the need for and availability of these resources.
Someday, perhaps in the very near future, it’s possible that the world will no longer have a need for this site.
That’s because a handful of forward-thinking institutions have started putting the complete contents of their courses online, for free.
> MIT is leading the field with 1100 courses online and recently other universities have joined in. In the US, these include
> Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health,
> Utah State University, and
> A large block of schools in China has committed to OCW, and
> schools in Japan and Vietnam are also on board.
