Pressbooks for Education

Pressbooks is a content management system for digital books. It is used by several educational institutions and organizations to write, edit, publish, and manage open textbooks in flexible digital formats, including those that are compatible with ebook readers and the web.

Several of the textbooks in the BCcampus Open Textbook Collection are created and managed through Pressbooks. An example of Pressbooks in action can be seen at Canadian History: Post-Confederation.
