A northern Illinois community college is taking steps to make textbooks more affordable for students.
McHenry County College said the school could save the student body an estimated $400,000 on textbooks per school year.
This follows a week-long Textbook Cost Reduction Camp held for faculty members in all areas of study.
The camp set out to educate faculty members on textbook alternatives and prepare them to introduce new technology into the classroom.
The faculty-led initiative analyzed 13 courses to find high-quality resources for students at a lower cost.
