The e-textbook should be aimed  at supporting the teaching of a particular course or a number of courses within an academic programme in the University. There are five e-textbook development grants to be awarded to selected authors, each grant worth USD2,000 per proposal. The BSU III project is funded by the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA).
