During this presentation the Florida Virtual Campus and Textbook Cost Indicators Working Group members will share details on the work completed with a statewide work-group to include textbook cost indicators in the State Online Course Catalog. The work-group identified and defined an indicator which highlights zero textbook cost(ZTC) courses, provided recommendations on classifications, provided guidance on the use and design of the indicator, and identified best practices for implementation. In addition to reviewing the workflow of the work-group itself, the panel will review the work-group outcomes, and provide attendees with two local examples of how these efforts may be implemented at an individual institution.
