Can open textbooks be used offline like textbooks?


#1

Yes, open textbooks can be viewed and printed just like conventional commercial textbooks. The only difference to student users here is the cost. Whereas resources such as commercial textbooks are expensive, with open textbooks students are empowered to print what they want from the resource, whether at home or through a commercial printing service, saving both cost and paper (Source).
