Northern Virginia Community College(NOVA) is the largest community college in Virginia with 6 campuses and the Extended Learning Institute (ELI) distance learning unit. NOVA, as part of the Virginia Community College System (VCCS), is committed to access, affordability, and student success. At ELI, we are especially concerned about the rising costs of textbooks and course materials for our online students. These students are more likely to utilize online resources, digital material and ebooks. The adoption and use of high quality OER is one way that we can lower costs and increase success for more students.
