ENGL 1101 Textbook Initiative: Writing for Success
(Saylor)

Potential resources for GPC's ENGL 1101 Textbook initiative. (ARCHIVE)

Pros/Cons

Content appropriate for our needs. 

PDF/docx formats

613 pages make it prohibitive to print the entire book.

docx format means it's easy to adapt and add multimedia

No Table of Contents/Index as written, making navigation difficult (We could add.)

Creative Commons "share alike" license means we must share our deriviative work on the open web and allow others to use and adapt it.  (They will not, however, be able to change our copy; they will have to make their own copy and change it, as we are doing.)  We cannot sell it for profit.
