One upside to the rising costs of textbooks is that it has spurred a
movement towards open access textbooks. In most instances, these textbooks
are published under an open license and can be used at no cost. Because of
the digital and open access nature, instructors are also able to modify and
adapt the material to better fit their instructional needs. *In 2012, the
British Columbia Ministry of Advanced Education announced that they would
be providing free online and open textbooks for the 40 most popular courses
in the near future.*
