Did you know McMaster has single-sign on to Pressbooks, an easy-to-use open content publishing platform for creating (or adapting) online resources such as textbooks, guidebooks, modules, lab manuals, student-generated assignments, and more? This session will provide an overview of Pressbooks and the dynamic features that are natively baked in – including H5P interactivity, annotation and embedded multimedia. If you’re looking to self-publish content of any length, and want a simple tool that enables customization, flexibility and accessible, varied publishing formats with web-hosting options, Pressbooks may be right for you. We’ll look at examples of instructor-created and student-created content and get you started on using Pressbooks for your teaching and learning.
