What is it?

Pressbooks is an online book/document formatting system that you can use to create materials that are accessible on all platforms: in print and digital, including all smartphones, tablets, e-reader devices, and computers.

Pressbooks can help you produce professional, platform-agnostic course materials in multiple formats: PDF (print and digital) | WEB | EPUB | MOBI | ODT| XML | WXR| XHTML.

Pressbooks is available to UF Faculty, staff and students at no cost through UF’s Unizin membership. Pressbooks can be handy for:

  • Housing content outside of Canvas for students to access any time, any where.
  • Linking to specific chapters in a PressBooks text.
  • Importing pieces of OER works created with PressBooks to incorporate with your own content.
