Low-cost Approach to Course Content

A low cost or no cost approach seeks to lower the expected student costs for required materials like textbooks.  

This faculty showcase is a discussion between Lynn Nahmens, Senior LXD and Dr. Josh Grimm, Interim Dean of the LSU Manship School of Mass Communication. In selecting his course materials, Dr. Grimm used a low-cost or no-cost approach so that it would be financially beneficial for students, and at the same time would keep the content current and relevant. In this interview, Dr. Grimm shares his thoughts and experiences in using this approach.
