Announced at OpenEd 2012 in Vancouver, the British Columbia Open Textbook Project has been developing and adapting open textbooks for highly enrolled courses and programs in British Columbia. As part of the project, BCcampus has been actively developing and extending an open publishing platform based on the popular WordPress CMS. PressBooks Textbooks is a WordPress plugin that extends the existing PressBooks plugin and enables the creation, remix and publishing of open textbooks in numerous formats. In this session we'll talk about the features of the plugin, as well as discuss some of the challenges and opportunities building an open source community of developers.
