EdTech Books is on a mission to provide the best open textbook publishing platform!

Best for Students

At EdTech Books, we believe that knowledge should be free, and that educational technology should lead the way! We provide high-quality textbooks to students at zero cost. Each year, we save students hundreds of thousands of dollars, all while providing robust learning experiences.

Best for Teachers

Teachers can experience peace of mind knowing that students have access to high-quality textbooks from day one of class. In addition, most of our textbooks can be remixed, meaning that teachers can edit, rearrange, and add content to the textbooks to meet student needs.

Note that each textbook is released under its own license, and some textbooks include chapters or other content that may be released under different licenses.

Best for Authors

The EdTech Books platform allows authors to get their open educational resource (OER) textbooks published and to reach a larger audience. The platform is packed with features, including an intuitive interface with simple editing, PDF downloads of every book and chapter, detailed analytics, and much more! All for free!

"The K-12 Educational Technology Handbook and the K-12 Blended Teaching Guide have been indispensable in my instructional technology courses. Each semester, my students thank me for these high quality resources that they don't have to pay for."
Ryan Cain, Weber State University
"It's been fabulous working with this platform - so much easier and more well-designed than the other OER platforms out there."
