LibreTexts unites students and faculty in a unified, easy-to-use online platform for the construction, customization, and dissemination of OER. LibreTexts is a community of faculty who teach across the higher ed curriculum and LibreTexts technology is built to support their needs.
To use LibreTexts to build your own custom book fill out the form at https://register.libretexts.org/. You get a personal (or a team) sandbox to work in, and when done LibreTexts will provide a branded Campus Shell. LibreTexts handles all IT.
If you want to learn more about LibreTexts come to our October 15 workshop
Institutions joining our network benefit from concentrated training and mentoring. Their LibreTexts are available as a branded collection in our new LibreCommons and more.
LibreTexts is the world’s most popular online textbook site with over 2000 books across the curriculum and over 688 million site visits. Every book can be printed at low cost. Files are updated weekly and available without cost.
LibreTexts is truly global, truly open and truly free with 60% of site visits from outside the US.
Almost all books are in English, but we have a Spanish language library and books in other languages are being developed by members of the LibreTexts community for their students. Books in any Unicode displayable language can be built.
LibreTexts believes we must Free the Textbook but for us, this means more than eliminating debilitating costs, it means freeing curricula from the printed commercial textbook straightjacket and giving teachers the tools needed to create their LibreTexts for their courses and students.
LibreTexts is an online repository and a platform for developing custom OER. It features a drag and drop remixer for easy and rapid building custom texts and interactive technologies that can be incorporated. Our homework system (ADAPT) goes well beyond H5P or what is available in LMSs.
If you want to chat during the meeting we will be available online via zoom at times TBA
