Calgary, AB (February 5, 2019) As awareness of Open Educational Resources (OER) grows, instructors are turning to Lyryx Learning as a full service publisher to provide both free open source textbooks along with corresponding affordable online homework. Most importantly, students benefit from the lower costs, as Lyryx has helped students save almost $9M over the past five years.
All Lyryx texts have an open license and are distributed to students at no cost. Instructors can also obtain the source files for the text, which they can edit as they wish. The cost of the online homework ranges from $40-$60 for the first course, and is reduced to $20 for any subsequent course. For those adopting the Lyryx online homework, the editorial and support teams are available daily to adapt the content to the particular course, and to provide assistance to instructors and students throughout the course.
Since 2015, Lyryx has also offered FREE access on campus which allows students to access all their course material at no cost in designated computer labs. This option, which has resulted in almost $500K savings for students over these past three years, is particularly valuable for students with financial needs and harkens back to the traditional campus library policy that provided reserve copies of course material for use in that location.
As a Canadian leader in the global OER movement, the goal of Lyryx Learning is not only to provide substantial cost savings for students, but also to provide instructors and students with high quality content, rigorously maintained online homework, editorial services, and prompt, effective support services.
