Consider using OERs--free, openly licensed course materials that allow you to make and distribute copies legally--in your classroom. This could allow you to:

  • Save money on expensive imported textbooks
  • Save time waiting for imported textbooks to be processed
  • Avoid approval issues related to using custom course packs
  • Allow you to customize content for Chinese students (if the license allows editing)
  • Enable you to print and distribute copies without worrying about copyright law
