NKU instructors adapting or creating OER can publish their book on the Pressbooks online publishing platform. Pressbooks enables authors to self-publish webbooks online. 

View examples of Pressbooks books at the Pressbooks Directory, learn more about NKU's Pressbooks instance on the SAALCK Consortium Pressbooks homepage, and learn how to publish a Pressbooks book on the Pressbooks Publishing Support guide.  

Publishing OER

Writing or revising the content of your OER can be done in a word processing or design software of your choice dependent on the type of resource you are producing. After revisions are complete, the content can be imported into a publication platform like Pressbooks. Select design, word processing, and publishing options are itemized below.

Enhanced and Interactive Integrations

When publishing an OER online, enhancement tools are available for creating more interactive materials.
