Open Textbooks are an important Open Educational Resource that faculty and students are free to Use, Share, Adapt and Remix. They have many advantages:
Open Books are similar to Open Textbooks in that they are free to Use and Share on sites like Moodle - but unlike Open Textbooks their Creative Commons Licenses generally do not include Adapting or Remixing in them. This makes them more like Open Access journal articles. So you need to check an Open Books license to learn if adapting or remixing is allowed.
