College Open Textbooks

I voted for this because it is such a great idea! The increasingly high cost of textbooks can be an additional barrier to students who are already struggling financially to get a college education.

--Maureen Mackey White, on College Open Textbooks


The AVU contains quality resources which are released as Open Educational Resources. It is enabling academics to distribute and disseminate their resources globally and contribute towards Africa's economic development through education. Moreover, the use of the resources are free.

--Anonymous, on African Virtual University

This personal financial planning course is really relevant given the financial crisis.

--Christine Jackson, on Personal Financial Planning at UC Irvine

UC Irvine OCW

Professor Dennin is an amazing professor! He makes learning about physics principles matter to those who are non-science majors. He applies physics to our every day interactions in the world and makes his students interested in learning the 'why' in addition to the 'what'.

--Brittany Salbato, on Science to Superheroes to Global Warming at UC Irvine

FGV Online

Very useful tools and complete subjects. A dynamic site that offers all you need to have a deep knowledge in the subject you are studying.

--Vinicius Coutinho, on FGV Online


This looks like an effective and entertaining way to learn the nuances of English vocabulary.

--Maureen Mackey White, on SNOWBALLS

Open platform and great course selection.
