Event description

This event is a part of the OER Production Series. Now rescheduled to Friday, May 26, 2023.

Pressbooks is an online self-publishing tool available to all post-secondary faculty and staff in B.C. and the Yukon. This webinar is a continuation of the Introduction to Pressbooks webinar, where we taught the basics of the platform. In this webinar, we will explore how to make the most of the many features in Pressbooks while ensuring accessibility and usability for students. This will include:

  • How to create complex content, like interactive H5P activities and math equations
  • How to customize the display of things like text, tables, textboxes
  • How to make your Pressbook easier to navigate
  • How to fill out metadata fields
  • What to consider with the different export formats (webbook, PDF, and ePub)
  • A tour of some existing OER created in Pressbooks to explore the range of ways people have used Pressbooks.
