About Pressbooks

eCampusOntario has partnered with Pressbooks to offer all Ontario educators free access to a Pressbooks EDU account. A Canadian company, Pressbooks, provides a simple entry into OER creation through its easy-to-use design. Based on WordPress, if you can use Word, you can create a traditional textbook. If you are willing to play and explore, with a little more time, you can transform your traditional textbook into an engaging and interactive OER.
