ALX is a cross-campus partnership between University Libraries, the Office of Distance Education and eLearning, Undergraduate Student Government, and the University Center for the Advancement of Teaching. By using the materials created by instructors, instructors regain control of course content and save students money.

The three primary grant opportunities are:

  • Textbook Affordability Grant: Projects funded through this grant will need limited hands-on support and be close to implementation (as in, work may have already begun). Individuals and teams are encouraged to apply.
  • ODEE Affordable Learning Grants (Exploration Grant or Open Impact Grant): These grants are designed to support transformational projects that result in high-impact, sustainable cost savings for students. These projects will need significant guidance and project management support.
  • Book Launch Grant: Participants create interactive textbook resources for use in Ohio State classes and beyond.
