TORONTO, July 22, 2019 /CNW/ - OpenStax and Vretta have partnered to distribute high-quality OER print textbooks to institutions and students across Canada.

Though OpenStax OER textbooks will always be free online, surveys have found that about 10% of students would rather use printed versions. By partnering with a leading Canadian education technology company, Vretta, OpenStax now has the means to meet the needs of many Canadian students who prefer using print textbooks to learn.
