You may be familiar with the Affordable Learning Exchange (ALX), the program that funds and supports faculty members to help them replace expensive textbooks with open educational resources (OER). But did you know how it’s funded?
Ohio State has an affinity program with WOW Internet Cable and Phone. This program provides funding for ALX grants while also offering discounted internet, cable and phone services to Ohio State faculty, staff and students. Through this partnership, WOW gains additional customers, the university receives funding to advance innovative teaching and those affiliated with the university can get a better rate on WOW services.
There are many benefits to the WOW Affinity Program, but the biggest win is for our students at Ohio State. Watch this video to see how two-time ALX alum Darcy Hartman has made a huge impact for students in her Economics classes.
