Overview

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

  • PDF (print and digital)
  • WEB
  • EPUB
  • MOBI
  • ODT
  • XML
  • WXR
  • XHTML

Applications

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.
