How have you used open textbooks?
I wrote my own and use it on both my American history survey courses--early (through 1865) and modern (to 2000.) The print version is available through Lulu books (www.lulu.com/hjsage). I have also used the State Department's "Outline of American History" while I was writing my own book.
Nice to see a fellow historian! I've been teaching European history; now nearing retirement. I have four extensive websites, but I like the idea of offering them also as a textbook. I'd surely like to talk with anyone who has converted or created a humanities-type textbook. What we do is different enough from other disciplines that I think it requires a separate discussion.
