Accounts and Users
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.
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 menu on the account sign-up page. (See Pressbooks Accounts.)
If you are an instructor or staff member with a private post-secondary institution not listed on the Institution drop-down menu, contact BCcampus Support for account set-up assistance.

Post-secondary faculty and staff from Ontario who want to use Pressbooks should fill out the Request a Pressbooks Account form offered by eCampusOntario. For assistance with ecampus Ontario’s Pressbooks instance, send a request via their Get in Touch form.
