Pressbooks and OEN partnership

Pressbooks and the Open Education Network have been friends since the early days of the open education movement, collaborating in multiple ways to help the movement grow. Our newest partnership allows OEN members to create a book with Pressbooks on the Collaboration plan, which allows multiple users to work together on a book and provides access to educational features (like the ability to add interactive quizzes) that enhance your book.
