The Global Text Project

The Global Text Project

Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world
- Nelson Mandela

The Global Text Project will create open content electronic textbooks that will be freely available from a website. Distribution will also be possible via paper, CD, or DVD. Their goal initially is to focus on content development and Web distribution, and they will work with relevant authorities to facilitate dissemination by other means when bandwidth is unavailable or inadequate. The goal is to make textbooks available to the many who cannot afford them.

All books will be released under Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License. This license allows for the ready distribution of texts in a variety of formats.

Now, this is a project I like :)
