How We're Helping Students

Affordable Learning Georgia seeks to increase access to a college education through making educational resources more affordable for USG students by supporting Open Educational Resource adoption, adaptation, and creation and use of materials in GALILEO and USG libraries. OER textbook replacement has been found to increase both retention and completion rates.

In partnership with eCore, the USG Libraries, GALILEO, the USG University Presses, and national partners including California State University and OpenStax College, Affordable Learning Georgia is funding and supporting efforts to replace commercial learning materials with no-cost-to-student alternatives, with a focus on the Top 50 USG lower-division Core courses. These courses are the fundamental building blocks of a college education. Easy, no-cost-access to learning materials helps to ensure student retention and completion of these courses, and helps students to stay on track for degree completion.

Through adoptions and adaptations of open educational resources, University System of Georgia professors had already saved students an estimated total of $1,000,000 per year in the 2013-2014 academic year: USG Faculty Using Open Educational Resources to Replace Textbooks at No Cost to Students

Affordable Learning Georgia is also working with USG college stores to support increased choice and low-cost access for students to learning materials.

ALG is collecting Student Success Stories, supporting advocacy, and gathering current research and literature on open educational resources to maximize the impact our projects have on success for USG students.
