Examining the Reuse of Open Textbooks
John Hilton III,David A. Wiley,Neil Lutz
International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning , 2012,
Abstract: An important element of open educational resources (OER) is the permission to use the materials in new ways, including revising and remixing them. Prior research has shown that the revision and remix rates for OER are relatively low. In this study we examined the extent to which the openly licensed Flat World Knowledge textbooks were being revised and remixed. We found that the levels of revision and remix were similar to those of other OER collections. We discuss the possible significance and implication of these findings.
Abstract
A Preliminary Examination of the Cost Savings and Learning Impacts of Using Open Textbooks in Middle and High School Science Classes,John Levi Hilton III,Shelley Ellington and Tiffany Hall
International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning , 2012,
Abstract: Proponents of open educational resources claim that significant cost savings are possible when open textbooks displace traditional textbooks in the classroom. Over a period of two years, we worked with 20 middle and high school science teachers (collectively teaching approximately 3,900 students) who adopted open textbooks to understand the process and determine the overall cost of such an adoption. The teachers deployed open textbooks in multiple ways. Some of these methods cost more than traditional textbooks; however, we did identify and implement a successful model of open textbook adoption that reduces costs by over 50% compared to the cost of adopting traditional textbooks. In addition, we examined the standardized test scores of students using the open textbooks and found no apparent differences in the results of students who used open textbooks compared with previous years when the same teachers’ students used traditional textbooks. However, given the limited sample of participating teachers, further investigation is needed.

Rosa Ventura-Martinez, Rebeca Aguirre-Hernandez, Jacinto Santiago-Mejia, Claudia Gomez, Rodolfo Rodriguez
Creative Education (CE) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2014.51009
Abstract:

Background: To date, little is known about the view of medical students towards pharmacology textbooks. This study aimed to investigate the preferences of second-year medical students towards pharmacology textbooks, and to identify the factors involved in book selection. Methods: Second-year medical students of the Medical School at the National University of Mexico (classes of 2010, 2011, and 2012) were asked to select their preferred textbook for studying pharmacology and preparing for exams from a list of nine textbooks. They also completed a 19-item questionnaire to identify and evaluate the reasons for their preferences. Results: A total of 1323 students completed the questionnaire, representing 45.59% of all medical students enrolled in 2010-2012. The two textbooks most preferred by students were Goodman & Gilman (25.3%) and Rodriguez et al. (27.3%); preferences for the other books were Harvey & Champe (13.9%), Rang et al. (13.5%), or Katzung et al. (12.3%), and others (7.6%). The usefulness and the adequacy of content were deemed equally important by students when choosing a textbook. Conclusions: Goodman & Gilman, a well-known pharmacology textbook, and Rodriguez et al., a small-volume textbook, were preferred by these second-year medical students; their choices were based on relevant pharmacological information and adequacy of content.

The Level of Multiple Intelligences in Arabic Language Textbooks for Grades from (1 - 4) in Jordan in Light of Gardner’s Theory  [PDF]
Saleh Mohammad Abu Jado
Creative Education (CE) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2015.614156
Abstract: This study aims to investigate the level of inclusion and balance of multiple intelligences in the Arabic Language textbooks in light of Gardner’s Theory using the analytical descriptive approach. Eight textbooks in grades (1 - 4) for the first and second semesters were taught in schools in the Jordanian educational system in 2013/2014. The selected textbooks were analyzed using Multiple Intelligences (MI) checklist devised by the researcher based on the framework of the Theory of Multiple Intelligences to examine them in relation to different intelligences as reflected through various activities, questions and tasks. The study sample consisted of all Arabic Language textbooks for the grades from 1 - 4. Results of the study showed that the verbal/linguistic intelligence in the textbooks in general scored the highest frequency amongst all types of intelligence; meanwhile the musical intelligence in the textbooks scored the lowest frequency among all types of intelligence. The study concluded with a recommendation to consider the necessity of employing all types of intelligence in designing Arabic language textbooks for young learners.
