Hello Everyone!

I am new to this list and I don't know how active the Open Textbooks
working group is, but I wanted to reach out anyway!

In my view, the main challenge in making textbooks open is that we have not

textbooks. I have been thinking a lost about these issues, and come up with

I'd love to hear what people in this group think about this approach!

All the best,
