Rice University’s OpenStax welcomes Netex as new educational technology partner

OpenStax, Universidad de Rice educational technology initiative offering free and flexible textbooks and other resources, has added Netex as a new technology partner to its OpenStax Ally program. Netex joins the more than 65 existing organizations that offer tools for classroom engagement, adaptive courseware, content customization, simulations, online homework and more.

Netex will enhance OpenStax textbook content with its wide range of learning technology, and Netex educational solutions will be available for OpenStax’s users — more than 36,000 instructors and 4 million students — for the spring 2022 semester.

OpenStax Allies are selected based on a shared mission to improve educational access and learning for everyone, the usage and plans for their products, a vision for the future of open educational resources and their ability to offer students fair prices.

Expanding offerings through the OpenStax Ally program will allow us to provide our adopters and their students with a wide array of tools that can truly meet their unique needs,” said Daniel Williamson, managing director of OpenStax. “It’s essential to provide educators with strong and vast technology options. They know their students and what will work best for them and should have the ability to choose the right technology.
