We were thrilled to recently be featured in the news for both our free open textbooks and company culture! In particular, we were pleased when Rip Empson at TechCrunch shared Boundless news about our 18 open textbooks available under a Creative Commons license.
The startup has released 18 open textbooks that features content licensed by Creative Commons, under the very same license used by Wikipedia, in fact. The 18 textbooks cover college subjects that range from accounting and biology to sociology and economics, and with content now licensed under Creative Commons, Boundless is assuaging some of the concern that teachers might feel over using open textbooks — as compared to the more “trusted” (or controlled) content from the familiar names.
TechCrunch wasn’t the only one to notice. Creative Commons also shared the updates on its blog.
With our newly-released openly-licensed books hit the web, so too did our free textbook alternatives for college students. Our Campus Marketing Manager at the University of Miami talked with the school’s newspaper, The Miami Hurricane, about our textbooks and said,
All you do is go to our website, type in the ISBN of the book and find the alternative.
We also had the recent pleasure of publishing a guest post on On Startups about the 4 startup personality types we look for in the hiring process. All Top Startups called our post one of the most popular business articles on the web last week!
