Textbook Equity Adopts Moodle for LMS (Jan 2016)

Got Moodle(r)*?  We do, and it is working nicely, thank you.  We adopted it for our online learning management platform.

Today I’m happy to announce that Textbook Equity, the company that grew out of Santa Clara University’s CAPE 2010 program, is expanding it offerings to include exams created from our free and open licensed textbooks, as well as online courses based on the same textbooks. These additional revenues will enable our mission to continue to provide free, open licensed, and inexpensive college-level textbooks.

We have four exams currently open for enrollment.  Fees are waived for educators, CAPE cohorts,:and the curious student.  Just write for instructions from your .edu email.
