SNAP: Blocks: E-Textbooks

E-Textbooks in SNAP

Instructors will need to work with LSU Libraries to add an e-textbook to a Moodle course. If a course has an e-textbook available, a block is displayed with a link to the library's e-textbook page, the title of the book, and a picture of the cover of the book which links to the book's download / source page. This data is pulled from E-Textbooks for Students Library Page.
