1 Pressbooks for B.C. and the Yukon

BCcampus Open Education provides a self-serve instance of Pressbooks called “B.C. Faculty Pressbooks” for faculty and staff at post-secondary institutions in British Columbia and the Yukon.

This is a free service.

When accessing this instance of Pressbooks, faculty and staff must use their institutional email address. A list of accepted email domains are below.

bcit.ca camosun.bc.ca camosun.ca capilanou.ca
cnc.bc.ca cotr.bc.ca douglascollege.ca ecuad.ca
jibc.ca kpu.ca langara.bc.ca nic.bc.ca
nlc.bc.ca nvit.bc.ca nwcc.bc.ca okanagan.bc.ca
royalroads.ca selkirk.ca sfu.ca tru.ca
ubc.ca ufv.ca unbc.ca uvic.ca
vcc.ca viu.ca yukoncollege.yk.ca
MORE TO COME: The email domain for Coast Mountain College (coastmountaincollege.ca), the new name for Northwest Community College, will be added soon. We will also be allowing faculty working at private post-secondary institutions based in B.C. to create Pressbooks accounts. When these changes have been implemented, we will update the above table.

The Sign up/Register page used to create an account says one must be a post-secondary faculty member, but post-secondary staff are eligible as well. Yukon faculty and staff are also eligible, and Yukon College is included in the “B.C. Institution” drop-down list on the account sign-up page. (See Pressbooks Accounts.)
Only public post-secondary institutions in B.C. (plus Yukon College) are listed on the drop-down list, but B.C. private post-secondary faculty and staff may use this Pressbooks instance as well. Those from a private college or university should contact the BCcampus Helpdesk for account set-up assistance.

Ontario post-secondary faculty and staff

Post-secondary faculty and staff from Ontario should email eCampusOntario at inquiry@ecampusontario.ca for Pressbooks help.
