Students whose faculty assign OER can reinvest their textbook savings in taking additional courses. If the average OER user enrolls in an additional credit(s), the institution stands to receive an additional $ in tuition revenue.
Net institutional revenue change is calculated as (tuition revenue not refunded) + (tuition revenue from increased enrollment intensity) - (lost bookstore revenue).
