Most works on assessment assume a face-to-face teaching context. The few that don't, assume that assessment issues are largely generic and equally applicable in face-to-face, open or distance contexts. Unfortunately, reality is far removed from this generalized viewpoint and, as the authors of this book point out, once assessment is considered from the open or distance learner's perspective it becomes very apparent that new approaches to assessment have to be developed. Written by practitioners in ODL for other practitioners, this is neither a book that preaches nor one that takes the abstract high ground. Offering concrete advice and evidence, it will help readers both to reflect upon their personal approaches to assessment and to adapt their techniques in order to benefit learners.

Textbook prices routinely cause sticker shock. Over the last decade, they have risen more steeply than the inflation rate and, in last year, the average textbook cost a student $62.97 While estimating the cost of a college education, today's college student needs to factor in several thousand dollars just for textbooks. Debate rages over the astronomical prices of college textbooks, and includes scrutiny of the practices of the textbook publishing industry. Powerful initiatives, including legislative solutions, have been proposed. In fact, the State of Maryland even passed the College Textbook Competition and Affordability Act of 2009. Some of the strongest movements to make textbooks accessible and affordable are open textbook initiatives, such as the Open Textbooks and Community College Consortium at http: // An open textbook is one that is accessible to all. Not only is it freely available for use but educators can modify, localize or update it to suit the particular needs of their students. The ease of access and customization of open textbooks has spurred tremendous interest among professors and educationists and the demand for affordable, up-to-date textbooks is changing the landscape of how learning content is being delivered. This in turn has fueled a growing trend for open textbook adoption. Through appropriate licensing deals, authors can now offer content that remains current and can be remixed or shared, and thereby extend the reach of their textbooks to a wider, newer, more empowered audience. In '#OPEN TEXTBOOK tweet Book01, ' written in the popular tweet format, "Sharyn Fitzpatrick," shares with you the value of open textbooks and shows authors how to benefit from the growing demand for them. Best practices on why and how open textbooks should be adopted for today's classrooms are covered.

The father of "open innovation" is back with his most significant book yet. Henry Chesbrough’s acclaimed book Open Innovation described a new paradigm for management in the 21st century. Open Services Innovation offers a new approach that demonstrates how open innovation combined with a services approach to business is an effective and powerful way to grow and compete in our increasingly services-driven economy. Chesbrough shows how companies in any industry can make the critical shift from product- to service-centric thinking, from closed to open innovation where co-creating with customers enables sustainable business models that drive continuous value creation for customers. He maps out a strategic approach and proven framework that any individual, business unit, company, or industry can put to work for renewed growth and profits. The book includes guidance and compelling examples for small and large companies, services businesses, and emerging economies, as well as a path forward for the innovation industry. "Whether you are managing a product or a service, your business needs to become more open and more inclusive in order to be more innovative. Open Services Innovation will be an invaluable guide to intrepid managers who commit to making that journey." —GARY HAMEL, visiting professor, London Business School; director, Management Lab; and author, The Future of Management "I tore out page after page to share with my leaders. Chesbrough has pioneered an entire rethink of business innovation that’s rich in concept, deeply explained, with tools ready to use in every industry." —SCOTT COOK, founder and chairman of the executive committee, Intuit "Focusing on core competence often tempts managers to keep continuing what succeeded in the past. A far more important question is what capabilities are critical in the future, and Chesbrough shows how to ask and answer these issues." —CLAYTON CHRISTENSEN, Robert & Jane Cizik Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School, and author, The Innovator's Dilemma "To thrive, businesses will need to master the lessons of open service innovation. Here is their one-stop guidebook with important lessons clearly and compellingly presented." —JAMES C. SPOHRER, director, IBM University Programs World-Wide "Open Innovation pioneer Henry Chesbrough breaks new ground with Open Services Innovation, a persuasive argument for the power of co-creation in the world of services." —TOM KELLEY, general manager, IDEO, and author, The Ten Faces of Innovation, The Art of Innovation "With his trademark style of beautifully explained examples, Henry Chesbrough shows how open service innovation and new business models can help you escape this product commodity trap and bring you to the next level of competition." —ALEX OSTERWALDER, author, Business Model Generation "Open Services Innovation shows how a business can redefine itself as a service organisation and tap into faster growth through shared innovation." —SIR TERRY LEAHY, chief executive, Tesco "Chesbrough shows how innovating openly with a services mindset can make you a market leader." —CHARLENE LI, author, Open Leadership, and founder, Altimeter Group
