Book

Creating a Book in Moodle can provide faculty with a place to put multiple pages of content, media, and other resources in an organized manner. Students can easily flip through the book to find the content they want or need.

The Book Module creates a Table of Contents for students to easily navigate between “chapter” headings or topics. You will have the option to use numerical, bulleted, or indented chapter formatting, or none at all.

There are two steps to setting up a Book – Step 1-Creating the structure, Step 2 – Creating the content

Step 1: Creating a Book

1. Click the Settings (wheel) icon and click Turn editing on in the upper right corner of your course page.

2. Click one of the Add an activity or resource drop down menus and select Book from the list.

To navigate between Chapters or Topics, you and students can use the Arrows or the Table of Contents. To change settings or content in any of your chapters or topics, relocate them, hide them, or delete them, use the tools to the right of the title.
