To CALM my Database Management course, I worked with the publisher to create a customized
textbook. The customized book contains only the chapters I consider useful for an
undergraduate database class. As a result, it is significantly more affordable for
students than the original book, which was costing students $228.80. Ultimately, I
was able to save students $91.13.
I also worked with the bookstore to ensure they will buy back the textbook from students
at the end of the semester.
In addition to this primary textbook, I also provided supplemental materials by creating
videos and linking to free articles to augment the learning experience.
