Better Education Through Open Publishing

Better Education Through Open Publishing

 

Open publisher Lulu helps students and teachers profit and share their ideas with readers all over the world.

Dr. Tony Kemerly, professor of biomechanics at High Point University, was frustrated by the limited resources for his class and had spent countless hours every semester stapling worksheets together for his students – a common problem for the Bureau of Labor Statistic’s recorded 1.7 million post-secondary teachers in the country.  Luckily, with the help of open publishing platform Lulu and its eBooks and print-on-demand technologies, these teachers and professors can publish their content for free and can be sure their students are receiving the most up-to-date classroom materials at an affordable price they set.
