Reconnecting with Library & Tutoring Services to Support Student Success

VIVA Faculty Textbook Portal

VIVA Open Education Network

Open Textbook Network (OTN) System Membership allows VIVA to train open education library leaders who will hold workshops for faculty across the state to support them in making greater use of openly available educational materials, including textbooks, which are free of cost to students.

By promoting the use and creation of high quality educational materials that are free for students to use, this initiative increases affordability in higher education, promotes student success, and empowers Virginia faculty to contribute to the growing field of open course materials.

Initial membership was approved by the VIVA Steering Committee in the spring of 2016, in an ongoing effort to strategically support open education and open access initiatives as a state. In the spring of 2017, the VIVA Steering Committee approved future support for faculty reviews through FY21.
