Adopting OER (open educational resources) is rarely a simple one-for-one switch. Adoption usually involves a certain amount of adaptation. That could mean reordering chapters, embedding media, editing text and images to be responsive to new cultural contexts, or creating a “Frankenbook‚Äù‚Äîbooks that are made up of chapters from several open sources. In this session, Amy Song will demonstrate how to clone OER into the Pressbooks Authoring & Editing Platform, add/remove/rearrange chapters, embed media, and perform other updates in order to prepare it for a class (online or face-to-face). Participants will be guided through a hands-on workshop on the basics of editing content in the Pressbooks Authoring & Editing Platform.
