Catch Pressbooks (and friends!) during Open Education Week 2019

We’re halfway through OpenEd Week! Hopefully it’s been a good one for you – it has been for us!

Pressbooks Client Manager Steel Wagstaff teamed up with eCampusOntario on Tuesday for ‘The Potential of PressbooksEDU,’ a webinar that included a tour of the updated OER production platform and demonstrated how Ontario educators can use Pressbooks to create no-cost resources for learners.

You can view Steel’s CC-BY licensed presentation slides here.

Steel will also be joining Hypothesis Director of Education Jeremy Dean for Marginalia: Web Annotation for Engaged Teaching and Learning, a live webinar on the potential of web annotation as an educational tool.
