About the Session:

OER Production SeriesThis event, part of the OER Production Series, is the first of two sessions discussing how to use Pressbooks to create and share open educational resources (OER).

Pressbooks is an online self-publishing tool available to all post-secondary faculty and staff in B.C. and the Yukon. Topics include 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.
