"The OpenMind Publishing Group brings textbook publishing to the web by incorporating an open source model."

"The company, run by former executives from leading publishing groups, is now offering professors the ability to create personalized textbooks and integrated teaching aids for free. Students can then purchase the materials for 70 percent less than traditional textbooks - providing a more focused and enriched learning experience."

"Our goal is to provide free access to the very best textbook content - returning the power of education back to the academic community," said Paul Elliot, chief executive officer of OpenMind. "During my tenure in textbook publishing, I realized that traditional publishing was actually breaking down the learning process - many times professors were not satisfied with the generic textbook content, and students couldn't afford the increasing costs."
