Driven by a mission to increase access and reduce the cost of higher education for Ohio State students and families, the Affordable Learning Exchange (ALX) uses a multi-pronged approach to support faculty who wish to explore affordable alternatives to expensive textbooks and course materials.

Since 2016, ALX has reduced the cost of learning materials for Ohio State students by over $44M by supporting faculty who create and adopt open educational resources and through deep discounts on publisher textbooks.
