Announcements

University of Regina PressbooksEDU Adoption

We are pleased to inform you that the UR Open Educational Resource Publishing Program has purchased an institutional subscription to the online platform PB Pressbooks. Pressbooks is an online content and courseware development platform.

With Pressbooks, faculty can find, adapt, create and contribute to educational content that is customizable, accessible, interactive, and, if the author chooses, free.

Using the Pressbooks Authoring & Editing Platform, faculty can adapt existing open educational resources (OER) for their classrooms, create new material from scratch, and enrich content with accessible math notation, videos, audio, web annotation, and H5P interactive elements like quizzes and other forms of assessment.

Permanent and term-appointment faculty and academic staff members can request a user account to gain full access to Pressbooks by contacting the UR OER Publishing Program Manager Isaac Mulolani at Open.Textbooks@uregina.ca.

If you are an APT staff member and if a Pressbooks user account would be helpful for your University projects, you may request a user account with your supervisor’s support. Your supervisor should contact the UR OER Program Manager to request an account on your behalf.

Graduate students are also eligible for a user account upon nomination by their faculty supervisor.

If you have questions about accessing and using Pressbooks, contact Open.Textbooks@uregina.ca.

For more technical guidance, visit the Pressbooks User Guide and the Pressbooks FAQ. If you wish to participate in Pressbooks’s open training sessions as an end user, visit the PressbooksEDU Training Schedule and register to participate.

We would like to thank the partner units, the Archer Library and the Centre for Continuing Education, for their contributions to this initiative. We would also like to acknowledge that the OER Publishing Program is supported by a grant from the Government of Saskatchewan.
