Open Education Alberta

Open Education Alberta is a collaborative, no-fee publishing service for open textbooks and other open educational resources.

It allows educators from the University of Calgary to host OERs on a Pressbooks instance hosted by the University of Alberta Library.

What is Pressbooks?

Pressbooks is a simple publishing software for the authoring and publication of multimedia-rich print books, ebooks, and webbooks. The published books are shareable in multiple formats including pdf, epub, and mobi and can easily be adapted and updated using the Pressbooks software.
