9. Use of Pressbooks

Most institutions are in consensus that a major draw of Pressbooks is its ability to centralize OER production on their campus. The software enables the key components necessary for OER: ability to create openly licensed texts and make them publicly available, options for interactive media, and the ability to duplicate other openly licensed texts. Most programs agree that there’s a learning curve that’s necessary to address with the software, and many offer Pressbooks-focused training while onboarding new OER authors and adaptors.
