  5. Give your chapter a title, and add content

There are other options available for you within the Table of contents of a Book activity. These include:

pencil icon Clicking on the pencil icon to the right of a chapter name will allow you to edit that chapter.
delete page icon red circle with white x Clicking on the red cross icon to the right of a chapter name will delete that chapter.<
show/hide eye icon Clicking on the eye icon to the right of a chapter name will 'hide' the chapter, meaning it won't be accessible to your students.

Chapters can contain text, links, embedded videos, and other multimedia content. It is also possible to add sub-pages that sit under a page. Any sub-pages will move, be hidden or be printed whenever the main page (chapter) is moved, hidden, or printed.

Book admin menuWhen you are inside the Book activity within LEO, the Administration block will have additional 'Book administration' functionalities. Some of these may not be relevant, however some you may want to be aware of including:

Edit settings – Click on 'Edit settings' to access the settings page for your Book resource.

Filter settings – The 'Filter settings' page for your book will allow you to 'toggle' (change) the options for how content will display in your Book. From the 'Filter settings' page you can alter Glossary auto-linking, and enable or disable multimedia plugins.

Logs – Logs are useful for if you would like to see which of your students have been accessing your Book activity, when, and for how long.

Backup – Clicking on 'Backup' will allow you to back up the content of your LEO unit, not just the Book activity.

Print book – Clicking on 'Print book' will open your book in a new window, in a format which will allow you to print all of the chapters of your book without having to open them individually.

Print this chapter – Clicking on 'Print this chapter' will open your current chapter in a new window. You can then print all of the content in this chapter, without printing the extraneous content on the page, such as the blocks, and LEO header image.
