Abstract

For Affordable Learning Georgia Textbook Transformation grant, our team has created no-cost textbook materials for a Comprehensive General Chemistry course for engineering majors. Our open-access materials are supplemented with video tutorials and problems with engineering applications to encourage students to engage with the course material without financial constraints. We will conduct a control-treatment study to measure the impacts of this transformation. We are collecting grade data, survey data, and web analytics to explore student textbook usage, change in learning outcomes, and change in student perception of course materials. We will present our textbook transformation journey, information on open-access resources, and preliminary findings.
