How are we using Pressbooks at Sask Polytech?

Pressbooks is a tool that facilitates finding, sharing and creating Open Educational Resources (OER). OER are teaching resources that have an open-copyright licence (such as one from Creative Commons), or are part of the public domain and have no copyright. Depending on the licence used, OER can be freely accessed, used, re-mixed, improved, and shared. Several Saskatchewan Polytechnic employees have already published resources in Pressbooks, these books cover topics that assist our programs and provide valuable information. We continue to grow our academic community's OER collection in Pressbooks .
