Zero Textbook Cost (ZTC) Courses

TESU is reducing traditional textbook costs by harnessing Open Educational Resources (OER) and other no-cost alternatives in its online courses. The courses below utilize openly-sourced materials and have zero learning materials or textbook cost (ZTC). Openly-sourced materials are an alternative to traditional course materials, reside in the public domain and encompass a rich array of readings, articles, case studies and multimedia components like videos and podcasts that can be integrated in your online courses.
