The open-source software Pressbooks has been improving its feature set for educational users, most notably those who are creating and remixing open textbooks. In August 2017, Pressbooks released a cloning tool that allows users to quickly and easily copy a complete Pressbooks book (with all the metadata, content, images) at the click of a button. This improves the potential reach of each open textbook that is created and allows books to become more modular and easily adaptable for a broader range of courses. Pressbooks has also been working on a new and improved web book (coming January 2018), as well as new landing and book catalog pages for educational networks. In the year ahead, we’ll be building additional features for faculty authoring open textbooks or monographs, such as indexing and glossary tools. In this session, find out what’s new, and what else is coming to improve the ease of formatting open educational resources including textbooks, monographs and more.
