Book module for Moodle - version 1.5 (stable release)
===============================================================================
Created by:
Petr Skoda (skodak) - most of the coding & design
Mojmir Volf - CSS formatted printer friendly format
Developed for Technical University of Liberec (Czech Republic).
Many ideas and code were taken from other Moodle modules and Moodle itself;-)
Installation:
* see http://docs.moodle.org/en/Installing_contributed_modules_or_plugins
List of features - version 1.5:
* easy to use - new teachers can quickly create multipage study materials
* two levels - only chapters and subchapters
* possible automatic chapter numbering
* chapters authored in build-in HTML editor (html stored in database,
images in course data)
* printing support - all chapters can be displayed on one CSS formatted page
* backup/restore with internal link preservation
* support for global searching in study materials (see contrib/search)
* import from html files (relinking of images, flash, Java applets and
relative links)
* works with MySQL and PostgreSQL databases
* no need to move language packs any more
Intentionally omitted features:
* more chapter levels - it would encourage teachers to write too much
complex and long books, better use standard standalone HTML editor and
import it as Resource. DocBook format is another suitable solution.
* TOC hiding in normal view - instead use printer friendly view
* PDF export - there is no elegant way AFAIK to convert HTML to PDF,
use virtual PDF printer or better use DocBook format for authoring
* detailed student tracking (postponed till officially supported)
* export as zipped set of HTML pages - instead use browser command
Save page as... in print view
Future:
* I like eXe editor, I would like to improve Book in this direction ... ;-)
