This is part of a series of posts showcasing some interesting infographics that are available on the web. For more information on infographics have a look here and for some of the problems with using infographics graphics have a look here.
Part Two of this series mostly focuses on Infographics that illustrate the US Education System - but I think there is valuable learning and questions they raise about the UK Education System as well.
Today's infographic is on "Open Source Books" (original source)
Open Textbooks is a new paradigm that is beginning to emerge and is becomeing increasing popular in the US (particularly Califonia I think?). It gives the option for students to print books on demand or download free digital copies at the fraction of the cost of a normal textbook price. As you can imagine there is some oposition - but it is an interenting model.
If your interested in Open Source Books then WikiBooks is not a bad place to start.
