Collegeopentextbooks.org, funded in part by the Hewlett Foundation, is taking peer reviewed open textbooks to the next level by offering a Textbook Reviewer badge.
The extensive badging process (including reviewer training, previous peer-accepted reviews, and an application) will hopefully give credibility and authority to the growing collection of open educational resources and textbooks on the internet. All reviewers must have “a minimum of one year of recent teaching experience” and an accepted CV/resume. Based on a variety of criteria, submitted textbook reviews are thoroughly checked and edited before they are posted.
