This guide is for faculty authors, librarians, project managers and others who are involved in the production of open textbooks in higher education and K-12. Content includes a checklist for getting started, publishing program case studies, textbook organization and elements, writing resources and an overview of useful tools.
The purpose for this guidebook is to provide ideas for how individual faculty members can research the effect of their adoption of open educational resources. Hopefully, this guide provides straightforward suggestions that could be implemented by OER adopters to identify what has happened as a result of their OER adoption.
This is a five-step guide for faculty, and those who support faculty, who want to modify an open textbook. Step-by-step instructions for importing and editing common open textbook file and platform types are included.
