SNAP: Activities & Resources: Add a Book

The book module enables a teacher to create a multi-page resource in a book-like format, with chapters and subchapters. Books can contain media files as well as text and are useful for displaying lengthy passages of information which can be broken down into sections. A book may be used to display reading material for individual modules of study, a staff departmental handbook, or a showcase portfolio of student work. It is a way to display HTML content seamlessly in Moodle.
