Affordable Learning Georgia

Are you familiar with Affordable Learning Georgia (ALG)? ALG is a University System of Georgia initiative to promote student success by providing affordable textbook alternatives. It is a one-stop service that faculty can use to identify lower-cost, free, and Open Educational Resources for their courses.

Look for a follow-up article, in late September, regarding steps VSU will be taking to help offset the high cost of textbooks.

For more information please refer to the ALG website.
