Course: BUS4 91L, Business Productivity Tools

Course Material: For many years I have been a champion of lower book prices for students. I am the author of the current textbook for the course: Business Productivity Tools, 3rd Edition, for Office 2010. In the 2013 and 2014 semesters this book was used by about 1600 students. Links to the textbook and all supporting course material were provided on a public website, at no cost to students. Assuming the standard textbook cost of $140, the total savings for all students was about $224,000.

Cost of Material: $0

Course Textbook:  Business Productivity Tools

Cost of Textbook: $140

Comments: This course teaches students how to use advanced features in Microsoft Office. A new textbook needs to be adopted for this course, covering the 2013 version of Microsoft Office. I am seeking a grant to personally write an Office 2013 textbook. Links to the textbook and all supporting course material will be provided on a public website at no cost to students.
