Building A Platform To Help Faculty Publish Open Textbooks


The Rebus Foundation is dedicated to building technology to support the availability of books in HTML format on the internet and increasing access to knowledge through open textbooks. The foundation will create a web-based system to simplify the open textbook publishing process, work to ensure that open textbooks are published in these accessible, standard formats, and build a community of open textbook creators. Better long-term infrastructure for OER and support for developing, adopting, and using open textbooks will help make higher education resources more effective and available at a lower cost.
