OER & ZTC: Open Educational Resources and Zero Textbook Cost Options

A guide for faculty and students about OER and ZTC at Pasadena City College

ZTC classes or "Zero-Textbook-Cost" classes are classes that have chosen a textbook that can be accessed freely online (such as an OER textbook) as their required textbook, or another no-cost option for the their textbook (such as no required textbook). 

You can now search for courses that are using a zero-textbook-cost option in the class schedule!  Watch the short video below that demonstrates how to search a "ZTC" class.
