Professor Larry Green from Lake Tahoe Community College is no stranger to OER. He believes in taking full advantage of any opportunity to create textbooks of the future for his courses by utilizing technologies that didn’t exist when the “traditional” textbook was invented decades ago by using videos, visualizations, and games to create more engaging and interactive content for his students. Along these lines he has created an interactive, enhanced Statistics book using the OpenStax Introductory Statistics textbook as his guide. Because both the OpenStax book and his interactive elements are openly licensed, they can be seamlessly integrated with one another. He has also created an online elementary statistics calculator using LibreTexts to provide his students an alternative to purchasing expensive graphing calculators required for statistics courses.
