The Book resource makes it easy to create multi-page resources with a book-like format.

Overview of the Book resource
book.png

Previously created websites can be imported directly into a Book. Books can be printed entirely or by chapter.

The Book resource allows you to have main chapters and sub chapters, but it goes no deeper. In other words, sub chapters cannot have their own sub chapters, as the module is intended to be a simple resource for teachers and students.

The Book resource is not interactive. You can, however, link to choices, forums etc., from within a book. Also, Flash movies and other multimedia may be included in a book.
