In the next few years, due to a number of circumstances, some resources will need to move to digital format. Although our school has a plethora of systems that would allow you to create and share content, Pressbooks allows us to BOTH create and share resources whilst creating a FULLY EDITABLE central repository of material.
Using Pressbooks doesn’t mean that now you have to re-write your material. With a few adaptions (mainly converting your PDFs into word documents) you can re-use most of your current resources.
The Pressbook format will allow you to
- add/remove content or chapters,
- add multimedia and/or
- add interactive content
- export/download your eBooks
- password-protect content
- clone, adapt and share existing ebooks/chapters
All of this from a centralised platform, always live and accessible.
All content imported into Pressbook can be downloaded in a number of formats (from PDF to epub), so none of your hard work is missed.
