I will also be facilitating open textbook workshops in Orlando January 26, St Petersburg January 28, Ft. Lauderdale February 1, and Houston February 3. Florida community colleges have signed up about 80 open textbook fans and advocate/trainers and Texas is a strong competitor. The Florida Distance LearningÂ Consortium (FDLC) also has an outstanding repository Orange Grove Texts Plus. The FDLC staff deserve all the credit for the high registration. FDLC staffÂ plus people from St. Petersburg and Broward Colleges are providing instructors for the workshops. Houston Community College is doing the same for the Feb 3 workshop.
