Great initiative!

A great, long-awaited initiative! Finally, the primary literature directly addresses undergraduate students without going through the slow, expensive textbook filtering.
No surprise this initiative comes from PLoS, which is already appreciated by many students who finally gained open, unlimited access to the highest quality science.
