OER Initiative FAQ What do I have to do to publish my textbook on Boundless? Nothing! Just send us the files and we will do all the work to migrate it to our e-reader. Will I still own my content? What if I want to remove it? Yes, you will still be the owner of your content, which will be licensed under CC BY-SA. Your website says you sell textbooks for $19.99. Will you make money off my content? No, we sell software, not content. All of our content is available for free online. We offer an optional, low-cost upgrade to students who want extra study software (responsive flashcards, quizzes, highlights, digital notebook, etc.) and package it with content as a “Boundless textbook.” This option is not available for OER content. I don’t have a textbook, but can I publish other course materials, like lecture notes? We would like to publish many different types of teaching materials, but our pilot program this summer will focus on complete textbooks.
