OEGlobal 2021 Silver Sponsor: LibreTexts

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.

Join LibreNet

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 Global

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.

Delmar, Joshua, thanks for providing this comprehensive overview of LibreTexts impressive work along with so many ways for people to participate.

One of my degrees is in Biology so I enjoyed browsing through the LibreTexts Biology Bookshelves and Biology Learning Objects collections. The inclusion of laboratory experiments and visualizations / simulations in the learning objects collection is great. Hope you continue to see an increase in visits adoptions and contributions.

Congrats on the development of a Spanish language library. Super pleased to see the diversification to include other languages.

We really appreciate your sponsorship of this conference and your efforts to make open education a truly global phenomenon.
