PressBooks Workshop

Pressbooks is a free online publishing tool offered by BCcampus and is used to create and adapt open textbooks for faculty and students in B.C. and around the world. The open source, online authoring and publishing platform runs on WordPress, a popular publishing and blogging platform. Pressbooks enables multiple delivery formats for your open textbook: your users can access it via a website, PDF document, EPUB document (so your readers can use their e-reader), or MOBI (specifically for Kindle).

In this 90 minute, hands-on workshop, Krista Lambert from CTLI will guide participants through the process of how to adapt open educational resources to meet the needs of learners in courses. Participants will learn where to find open educational resources that are in alignment with the learning outcomes for their course and ABE program. In addition, participants will learn how to embed interactive quizzes, videos, and images into their content to enhance the learning experience for the student.
