Hi Monica, I’m interested in this access. My preferred URL is press.rebus.community/ci_disease_pubhealth

Thanks!

Hi, Brandye!

You should be all set up now. Keep an eye out for two emails: 1 containing your username and information to set up your account and 1 notifying you of the creation of your book. Underscores are not allowed in the URL so I did change them to hyphens - I hope that’s okay! If you have any questions about this, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.

Hello Monica,

thank you for arranging this. I would like the url of my book to be: worldhum

with warm wishes,
Václav

@Monica, I’m having a really hard time inviting Mariann Hawken to my book. I’ve tried to add her as a new user, and it keeps telling me “Sorry, that email address is not allowed.” So, then, I was thinking she was an existing user, and that didn’t work either.

How can we get her added? Her email address is mariannhawken@umbc.edu

Hi @Monica,

press.rebus.community/EM_TheoryAndApplications

Best,

It should be up and working now (I had to add the domain to our press’ allowed emails list). I’ve added her as a user, and she should have received info to create her account and a notification with confirmation link for joining your book.

Hope this helps! Please let me know if anything else comes up.

You should be all set up now, Nicholas. Keep an eye out for two emails: 1 containing your username and information to set up your account and 1 notifying you of the creation of your book.

Hi, Andy!

We’ve set you up with an account and book. You should have received an email from pressbooks@press.rebus.community with your username and a link to set up your account, and a second email notifying you that you’ve been added to your book. You should be able to add any additional collaborators, but if you run into trouble just let me know!

In terms of H5P, you can embed them into your Pressbooks but I believe you will need to create your own H5P account. I hope that info helps!

I’ll also just note that we strongly recommend folks register for the 2 Pressbooks webinars that provide an introduction to the platform and the educational features available. In addition, feel free to consult any of these resources:

Enjoy getting started!

Thanks Monica! Did / does Kongmei also have access? Thanks again.

Andy

Thanks for flagging that, Andy. I’ve created a Pressbooks account for @kongmeinj and have added her to your book as an administrator. Please let me know if you have any other questions!

FYI - you should be able to add other users to the book (besides Mei) if you would like. If you run into any trouble when adding new users, just send us a message on the forum here and we’ll sort it out. :slight_smile:

Monica,

I am a little behind with choosing where to build my content (other than my google drive), but I think Pressbooks would be the best fit for me.

Thanks!

Hi, Jessica.

No worries! I’ve gone ahead and set you up with an account and book. You should have received an email from pressbooks@press.rebus.community with your username and a link to set up your account, and a second email notifying you that you’ve been added to your book. You should be able to add any additional collaborators, but if you run into trouble just let me know!
