Digital Open Textbooks for Development

The Digital Open Textbooks for Development (DOT4D) project is hosted by the Centre for Innovation in Learning and Teaching at the University of Cape Town and led by Principal Investigator Dr Glenda Cox. The project aims to investigate the current open textbook ecosystem and provide implementation support in open textbook publishing activity. It also aims to support policy-makers and other stakeholders in the development of institutional and national policy frameworks that govern open textbook publishing activity and address long-term sustainability mechanisms. Funded by Canada’s International Development Research, the project aims to contribute a developing-country perspective on the global debate around open textbook publishing.
