PressBooks Presentation (Open Publishing)

Are you a faculty member seeking to publish an Open Access book or a free (open) textbook? Do you know there is an online self-publishing platform that is simple to use, has a plugin for integrating LaTeX, and produces publications that can be easily exported and distributed as ebooks, high quality PDFs, and in print-on-demand formats? Are you also aware that some faculty are using this platform as a teaching tool, creating textbooks with students as a class assignment using it? Did you know that you can publish a work for as little as $99 using the system? Join us for a demonstration of PressBooks, a platform that is revolutionizing publishing and teaching. You will also learn how faculty members are using the system in their instruction and the pedagogical implications of having students publish their works.
