CK-12 Flexbooks Resource Series added to the NCLOR

Twelve new ebooks have been added to the NCLOR as a resource series. The new flexbooks (ebooks) are supplied from the CK-12 Foundation. The CK-12 Foundation is a non-profit organization with a mission to reduce the cost of textbook materials for the K-12 market both in the U.S. and worldwide. Using an open-content, web-based collaborative model termed the “FlexBook,” CK-12 intends to pioneer the generation and distribution of high quality educational content that will serve both as core text as well as provide an adaptive environment for learning.

The subjects included in the new flexbooks series are Algebra, Biology, Physics, Calculus, Chemistry, Engineering, and Statistics. Each book has multiple chapters and each chapter has been added as a NCLOR item, thus giving faculty the ability to add links to ebook chapters directly into their LMS.

To access this resource series:

  1. log into the NCLOR  < www.explorethelor.org > or through your institution’s learning management system (LMS)
  2. navigate to the Browse by Resource Series area
  3. click on the CK-12 Flexbooks series.
