The next Cooking with H5P and Pressbooks webinar takes place Thursday, April 29 at 9:00 am PT (check for your local time). For this episode, we invited into the kitchen Steel Wagstaff, Educational Product Manager for Pressbooks. From his position, he will be able to share much about the features and capabilities of Pressbooks, how H5P integrates with it, examples worth looking at, and maybe some insight into future directions for the platform.
Did I hear someone whisper “Book SPLOT”?!
The easiest method is obviously to publish a .pdf copy and simply link it. If you have a text version of it and want .epub or .mobi files for e-readers I’ve got infrastructure for converting text into those I could put into service for you. I’ve done it in the past for Stommel and Morris’s Urgency of Teachers. (I have a small publishing house on the side and can help you out with ISBN numbers for much cheaper than usual if you like.)
@kfitz has done it a few times during the process of writing and subsequently publishing books, so she may have ideas/opinions. If I’m not mistaken, she used CommentPress, so that may be most comfortable for you from within the WordPress world.
Jeremy Keith has an awesome example at https://resilientwebdesign.com/ and if you pinged him, he may have a flat html file “shell” that you could cut and paste into. (Or you could view source and manually get the same result.)
Amy Guy’s example on Github which she published using Github Pages is nice and could make a fun little project for you as well.
It would be so much nicer if there were a one click install of PressBooks, but I’ve quit holding my breath on that front. (Maybe it’s a future possibility for Reclaim Cloud though???)
Really excited to host this #OpenEd20 panel tomorrow showcasing some great examples of DIY open courseware from Adeola, Michelle, and Brenna. Come see how they (and you) can use @pressbooks + @H5PTechnology to make engaging, interactive, openly licensed learning happen! https://t.co/geTQRncp4C— Steel Wagstaff (@steelwagstaff) November 9, 2020
Steel Wagstaff at Pressbooks has been talking to me for the past few months of a relatively new feature of Pressbooks where, when you clone a Pressbooks book it will now bring over all the H5P acti…
The tough question is what domain name shall I choose for experiments?
A couple weeks ago, we removed Pressbooks from the WordPress Plugin Repository. We want to offer an explanation for this decision to our users, and give some insight into our plans for the distribution of Pressbooks moving forward. Press...
