I am the organizer for a SXSWedu panel, Advances in Open Textbook Publishing, that will show off new OER authoring tools, production pipelines, and interactive content visualizations. I will be talking about authoring OER in a remixable way and show examples from the OER community. Connexions will show off their new editing tools and innovative production pipeline for beautifully formatted textbooks. And we will be showing off new ways of enriching content with interactives taking advantage of new web technologies and connections between OER sites.
Questions we will answer
- How do you make creating, sharing, and remixing open textbooks easy, without sacrificing quality?
- How do you produce beautiful and engaging textbook content and distribute it to any student on any device in many formats?
- How will future textbooks engage students by taking advantage of new web technology and new connections between OER from many providers?
