The author wishes to acknowledge the achievements of the Learning Technology Team of the Faculty of Health Disciplines, Athabasca University, in development and hosting the first collaborative open source e-publishing system for e-textbooks within a post-secondary environment in Alberta, Canada   (WordPress – Pressbooks Content Management System). This service was open to the world on 2015-08-14.

This web publishing service was born from the support and publication initiatives of Dr. Sherri Melrose (Creative Clinical Teaching In The Health Professions, and Supporting Individuals With Intellectual Disabilities & Mental Illness), which incorporated innovative computing technologies to provide open educational resources for all learners, freely accessible anytime and anywhere via the Internet.
