Our open textbooks program went from one college, three part-time staff, very little funding, an unwieldy website platform, no digitized book production, no statistics, no author participation and many unanswered questions like, “What are open textbooks and why should we care?” to: open educational services, 64 partner colleges, an executive director, advisory board, multiple book formats, author involvement, faster publishing and nearly 200,000 downloads of our textbooks. All of this is due to the flexibility of WordPress.
