In July of 2022 the first details of the implementation of the Zero Textbook Cost (ZTC) Degree Program were shared. As open educational resources (OER) are specifically emphasized in the legislation, and as OER is one of the most sustainable approaches to eliminating textbook costs, the OERI has been archiving communications related to the ZTC Degree Program and related developments.
