The Open Educational Resources (OER) Initiative at the University of Hawaii aims to alleviate the financial burden of textbooks and its negative impact on academic success by offering Zero Textbook-Cost courses. The LTEC department abides by the OER initiative and offers a number of courses which either features texts created by UH Mānoa faculty, some assign online material through the UH Mānoa Library, and others draw from a number of open online sources.
