This entry relates to styles and layout. A book is classified as a 'resource' in FLO.
A FLO book is an organisational tool that allows you to structure your topic in a meaningful way that may reduce scrolling on the topic homepage. Students are able to see the relational elements in your topic (e.g. key information, module content) in one convenient place, and can print if they need to.
The book tool enables a teacher to create a multi-page resource in a book-like format, with chapters and sub-chapters. Books can contain media files as well as text, and are useful for displaying lengthy information which can be broken down ('chunked') into sections.
You could use a book to display reading material for individual modules of study, or as a showcase portfolio of student work.
