OER Production Series: Introduction to Pressbooks

*Note: This session has passed. Please view the resources and recordings below.

This event is a part of the OER Production Series and is part one of two that will discuss how to use Pressbooks to create and share open educational resources (OER). We will introduce Pressbooks and show you how to create and share OER with students and fellow educators. Pressbooks is an online self-publishing tool available to all post-secondary faculty and staff in B.C. and the Yukon. Topics include an introduction to Pressbooks, how to create an account, how to create a book in Pressbooks, and an overview of the Pressbooks editor. The webinar will also introduce such topics as creating math equations using MathJax, importing content, H5P, and sharing books in multiple formats.


Harper Friedman (he/him) is a coordinator of Open Textbook Publishing at BCcampus. A recent graduate of the University of Victoria, he is using his skills to help create openly licensed educational resources, primarily in Pressbooks. Through this work he has developed his knowledge of Pressbooks and LaTeX as well as accessibility best practices.
