Limited Capacity seats available

Open Session Limited to 40 Participants (First-Come, First-In)

If a faculty member says: "I'd like to make an Open Textbook, what do I do?" ... how do we answer? Right now, it's not clear there is a solid answer. There are resources, tools, and some programs out there, but the distance between "I'd like to make an Open Textbook" and "publishing an Open Textbook" is far. What, even, does "Publishing an Open Textbook" mean exactly? Making a PDF available on the web for download? Or something more? With a new initiative, Reb.us, we're trying to build out a sensible answer to the question, and make it easy for any educational institution to support Open Textbook creation (without reinventing the wheel), and easy for any faculty member wishing to create an Open Textbook to do so.
