Pressbooks is a platform for writing, editing and remixing open textbooks and OER. Published books can be shared digitally and users may download them in multiple formats including PDF and ePub. In addition to editing original content, Pressbooks allows users to clone and revise other openly licensed Pressbooks. This allows instructors to rearrange content to better align with teaching sequences, edit content to reflect local course goals, or remix multiple sources to create a custom text.
