Working in Pressbooks – Online Platform

Can’t Log in to Pressbooks

If you attempt to log into your Pressbooks account five times without success, the system will lock you out. The lockout lasts for 15 minutes, after which you will be allowed another five attempts.

Note: your username should never change. Your username will be same as your my.ryerson username with the exception that Pressbooks does not allow periods (.) in a username.  If your my.ryerson username is first.last, for Pressbooks it will be firstlast.

If you forget your password, see Recover your Password
