Maricopa Millions

Maricopa Community Colleges District has the goal of trying to save students 5 million dollars over the next 5 years in textbook costs by offering OER or low-cost alternatives. They seem to be on track as they were able to hit 1.4 million in savings in their 1st year alone.

Part of their solution includes a class search option that filters out any classes that has a textbook cost greater than $40.
