On October 15, the 20 Million Minds Foundation announced a custom textbook platform called 20 Million Minds Mix (20MMix). The utility is powered by AcademicPub and allows faculty to access, remix, revise, repurpose, and deliver open content to students, providing a more affordable option compared to traditional textbooks.
Connexions, the country’s largest open education resource repository, and over 140 academic publishers have made more than 5 million units of material available to instructors. The platform allows faculty to quickly compose, price, and deliver custom textbooks to students in digital or print formats, using content from a variety of sources with real-time copyright-clearance for non-open content, , including self-generated works, works from the web, and the extensive library of Connexions. In addition, 20MMix hosts a live running total feature that allows instructors to track the cost of their book as it is being developed.
