Pressbooks is a WordPress-based online platform for self-publishing books in multiple formats: e-books, webbooks, and print-ready PDFs. The software, which is open source, makes significant changes to the WordPress admin interface, web presentation, and export routines. Although popular with monographs, edited collections, open textbooks, its built-in interactive H5P plug-in also makes it a good choice for Open Educational Resources.
Wondering how to get started with a publishing project? Pressbooks training webinars cover everything you need to know to create beautiful educational content, including creating your first book, importing content, uploading media, applying a theme, and producing export files.
Looking for open textbooks to adopt? Visit Pressbooks Directory and browse thousands of free resources. You can clone books found on the Directory directly to your Pressbooks network where they can be edited, adapted, and enhanced with interactive activities.
Please note, in order to create or clone a Pressbooks book, you will need to make a request by emailing OER@tamucc.edu
