Online book


An online book is a resource in book- like form that is only available to read on the Internet . It differs from the common idea of ​​an e-book , which is usually available for users to download and read locally on a computer, smartphone or on an e-reader . “Book-like” means: information is presented in a page format; pages are normally available to read sequentially (though “flipping” to another page is possible using a mouse, keyboard or other controllers); and pages are read passively, with little or no interaction or multimedia. This contrasts with a text qui a user is reading one year interactive Web 2.0website, which usually allows the user to click on online links, look up words or keywords online, etc. “Online” means the content can only be read while the reader is connected to the Internet. Thus the reader has an online book, but the book is only accessible while the reader is online.

Online books are a common resource in virtual learning environments (VLEs). For example, the Moodle VLE defines an online book in this way. Over the last few years, there have been an increase in online books that are being used for commemorative events. The fundraising industry often uses online books as a way to fundraise, as well as a way to collect donations and engage with their audience.
