The Affordable Learning Exchange (ALX) is expanding their scope this autumn by piloting a racial justice grant. This new opportunity will support instructors who are incorporating assignments, resources and approaches for teaching students about issues facing Black Americans and other marginalized groups.
The Affordable Learning Exchange (ALX) team offers support to instructors who would like to explore the freely available test banks we have developed in partnership with the Unizin Consortium, the Big Ten Academic Alliance (BTAA) and Pennsylvania State University.
The latest cohort of Affordable Learning Exchange (ALX) grant winners has been selected and will begin their affordability projects this spring. This group of 32 individuals will complete projects for 35 different courses across all Ohio State campuses, and are expected to save students over $300,000!

Dr. Meshelemiah is combatting this with her newly redesigned course.
