Why we adopted an oa textbook in 2009
Why we adopted an OA Textbook (in 2009)

  • Outdated, overpriced textbook ($200 – no return possible)

  • Expensive alternatives ($200)

  • Student input

  • Digital pre-natives (in 2009): multiple ways to access (laptop, tablet, print-on-demand: $30)


Why we abandoned oa in 2010
Why we abandoned OA (in 2010)

  • Content

    • Insufficient teaching materials for instructors

    • insufficient companion materials for students

  • Structure

    • Non-linearity of grammar companion website


Why we are gradually changing back to oa in 2014
Why we are (gradually) changing back to OA (in 2014)

  • Learner/ learning styles: digital natives

  • Professional development (flipped classroom)

  • Growth of Ecampus degree on international scale (textbook purchasing from abroad; easy embedding)

  • German for STEM (OA textbook as “backup” resource instead of content delivery)
