PressbooksEDU is problem-solving in open textbook production. That's why we've used it to produce our Open Textbook Network guides, and offer a sandbox space and discount to our members.

Managing Director, Open Textbook Network
It’s the community of folks working on the codebase, and working with OER inside of Pressbooks, that makes it a solid choice for us to begin our own OER initiative with.

Pressbooks helps straighten the learning curve for educators writing open textbooks. It eases many of the tricky formatting issues, allowing educators to concentrate on curating content and setting the context for their course resources. Built on the power of WordPress, it continues to harness plugins that enhance learning and empower educators.
Peggy French
Program Manager, eCampusOntario
Pressbooks is a powerful tool in our arsenal of support for open projects. It provides a user-friendly entry point for authors, reviewers, and collaborators. Whether it’s a textbook, anthology, curated collection, lab manual, or workbook, Pressbooks enables creative course materials that we all can be proud of.
