The Book tool is not suitable for the purposes of assessing students. However the Book tool is useful for providing additional context to your students around their assessment tasks. Rather than cluttering up the 'Description' section of your Assignment activity for example, you can make additional resources and information available to the students who wish to make use of it.
For example, you could create a Book within LEO with pages containing:
- embedded video clips
- links to other websites
- citations for additional readings or academic papers
- an embedded Twitter feed
- an embedded RSS feed
- embedded PDFs
- embedded sound files
- written text.
Additionally, more advanced users can use the HTML editor function. You don't need to know HTML to edit a Book, however if you do, you can make the chapters within your Book look and behave the same as any other webpage!
To edit the HTML for the chapters in your Book, click on the HTML icon while in the editing screen.
