The Textbook Problem by Lily Hansen

MEDIUM: Website; Video Essay

This site was created in September 2015 as a semester-long multimedia project.

I was really involved with the project and found the topic relevant and important enough to include additional informative stories, ASFs and photo elements. Textbook pricing is a more complex issue than most people realize. It tends to be portrayed as rather two-sided (expensive vs necessary), but from my interviews and research, I uncovered an aspect I, and maybe many others, hadn’t thought of before- textbook affordability for particular students. I’m really proud of this project and think I did a thorough job showcasing the broad perspectives on this issue.
