Saving a "Book" resource

The "Book" feature in Moodle is commonly used to present content spread over multiple pages, such as guided readings. A Book in Moodle can be identified by its icon, which is this: . You'll see this icon next to any Book on your course homepage.

When you open a Book, you'll see a menu with a table of contents on the left and a page of content on the right. You can navigate using the left and right arrows on the right side (above and below the page of content) or using the menu on the left.

To save a Book, look at the Administration menu when you have the Book open:

Book administration menu


Select "Print book" and you'll see a pop-up browser window. If you don't see this, please check your browser settings to make sure you have enabled pop-ups.

When the pop-up window appears, select "Print book" again on the top left corner of the pop-up window, which is basically the whole Book in one webpage. You can then print the Book as a PDF file, if you have a PDF writer installed. Or you can send the print command to your printer, if you have one.

Every page in the printed Book will match the respective page in the online version of the Book. If the online version of a Book page has just a few lines, the printed page will also have the same few lines and the remaining space will be blank. We recommend that you print the Book as a PDF file to conserve paper. If you would like to install a PDF writer, CutePDF is a good choice.

Remember: Before you print, check all the interactive elements in the Book, such as reflection questions and embedded quizzes. If you see any such elements, you'll need to open or answer them before printing the Book.
