Connexions modular content

Connexions ( cnx.org ) is an online, open access educational resource dedicated to providing high quality learning materials free online, free in printable PDF format, and at low cost in bound volumes through print-on-demand publishing. The Collaborative Statistics textbook is one of many collections available to Connexions users. Each collection is composed of a number of re-usable learning modules written in the Connexions XML markup language. Each module may also be re-used (or 're-purposed') as part of other collections and may be used outside of Connexions. Including Collaborative Statistics , Connexions currently offers over 6500 modules and more than 350 collections.

The modules of Collaborative Statistics are derived from the original paper version of the textbook under the same title, Collaborative Statistics . Each module represents a self-contained concept from the original work. Together, the modules comprise the original textbook.

Re-use and customization

The Creative Commons (CC) Attribution license applies to all Connexions modules. Under this license, any module in Connexions may be used or modified for any purpose as long as proper attribution to the original author(s) is maintained. Connexions' authoring tools make re-use (or re-purposing) easy. Therefore, instructors anywhere are permitted to create customized versions of the Collaborative Statistics textbook by editing modules, deleting unneeded modules, and adding their own supplementary modules. Connexions' authoring tools keep track of these changes and maintain the CC license's required attribution to the original authors. This process creates a new collection that can be viewed online, downloaded as a single PDF file, or ordered in any quantity by instructors and students as a low-cost printed textbook.
