Liz and I talk about how to use Pressbooks. We discuss Word styles, themes, imports, customization, publishing to your website, creating lead magnets, creating books from blogs, and adding interactive elements like audio and video. I didn’t know about some of these features until our conversation and I fully intend to use them.
I really like Pressbooks. So far I’ve used Pressbooks to collaborate, publish, and update books. I recommend it all the time and I think you'll probably consider using it after hearing this conversation. Enjoy!
