Hello Pressbooks! Thanks for joining us at the conference. We expect many attending the conference have questions, ideas, comments, or just want to share how much they love the platform. Are there any new features on the horizon we will learn about?

@JCurtis, glad to share that I trained 30+ Faculty Members from 10 Malaysian Universities on Developing Inclusive Open Textbooks (iOTB) Using Pressbooks from November 1 to 3, 2023. With the support of Commonwealth of Learning (COL), Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) organized a 3-day workshop in line with the Malaysia National Inclusive Open Educational Resources Policy (iOER). Participants explored Pressbooks platform and its built-in accessibility, collaboration, (H5P) interactivity features. They designed and developed their open textbooks front matter, back matter (with a glossary) and chapters with inclusive and interactive content, including openers, pedagogical elements and closers etc.
