Knight Library - DREAM Lab - Workshop Space (Knight 122A)
Build on learning from the “Intro to Pressbooks” workshop to learn how to integrate interactive content into web books made with Pressbooks. We’ll also dive into some more advanced tools that allow you to customize your creations. Pressbooks allows you to seamlessly integrate the web annotation tool Hypothesis and the interactive activity tool H5P. These tools allow authors to promote active learning in their books and facilitate student discussion. In this workshop you’ll use Pressbooks to create an interactive activity yourself and get hands-on experience using the tools we discuss.
