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.
