Webinar on Developing Interactive Open Textbooks for Indian School Education

March 7, 2024 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am BST

Open textbooks, a subset of open educational resources (OER) are digitally structured open textbooks, released in adaptable and shareable formats, with a Creative Commons  (CC) license. Open textbooks enable teachers to develop and update textbooks in alignment with their curricular needs and to improve students access to quality learning content. Pressbooks, a WordPress-based open textbooks platform enables teachers to develop open textbooks by adapting OER / open textbooks content; embedding media, interactive content, simulations and self-assessment questions to ascertain student mastery over the concept.
