The Manitoba Open Textbook Initiative
Campus Manitoba OER Videos
"Edited by University of Manitoba Libraries. The OER by Discipline Guide: University of Manitoba is a resource that lists a broad range of open educational resources organized by UM departments."
"OpenED Manitoba was formed in 2015 with one goal: to make higher education more accessible by reducing student costs through the use of openly licensed textbooks. Since then, we’ve grown into a collaborative team of curious open advocates who guide members of Manitoba’s post-secondary community through all things open education."
"Textbooks in the Open Textbook Library are considered open because they are free to use and distribute, and are licensed to be freely adapted or changed with proper attribution."
