Helping with the cost of textbooks
How have Furman chemistry professors Brian Goess and Greg Springsteen eliminated the need for their students to purchase any textbooks for a series of three organic chemistry courses? It’s easy. They not only lend students books and post lectures online, but they also collaborate with students to create a free textbook through an online wiki site. The work of the two Furman professors were featured in a front-page Greenville News story about how area professors are trying to help their students with the high cost of textbooks.
