The goal of the LibreTexts project is to establish a vetted, comprehensive, and widely-used platform for the dissemination and implementation of customized course materials for post-secondary courses, while significantly reducing existing textbook costs for students. The LibreTexts project consists of 12 independently operating and interconnected “libraries” that focus on augmenting education in separate fields via a series of open-access online textbook environments that includes complementary ancillaries that advance diverse pedagogical methods and support multiple student learning styles.
The LibreTexts libraries currently benefits over 60 million students per year and is arguably the most visited chemistry website in the world. Central to its success is the construction and adoption of faculty specific and freely accessible "LibreTexts" that substitute for costly conventional textbooks in post-secondary courses. These are assembles by incorporating content from an extensive network of existing chemistry and broader materials.
- 4: Harvesting 101
- If you are new to editing the Libretexts this will get you started
- 6: Adding and Editing Equations
- The equations in the LibreTexts are handled by the MathJax add-on (based on LaTex). Below are some details to help out.
- 13: The OER Remixer
- The OER Remixer is a self-service tool to rapidly assemble a LibreText from existing sources. This tutorial will include both an explanation of the User Interface as well as a walkthrough of how to do basic tasks.
- 15: Embedding Jupyter Code
- The Jupyter system is a power aspect to the LibreTexts platform. Embed a jupter code in four steps.
