In addition to facilitating source conversions, workshop activities will include learning the use of GitHub as a way to accept contributions and corrections from instructors and readers. Source-level graphics languages will be presented as a way to include graphics in an editable format. Sage Cell instances and live WeBWorK exercises will be presented as interactive mathematical elements of HTML output. Members of the AIM Open Texbook Editorial Board will assist authors with improvements to their texts.
