Add a book activity to your course and use Lucimoo to import content from EPUB ebooks. In addition to importing an entire book, you can choose to import chapters as individual books - this is handy if you want to intersperse each chapter with other Moodle activities. You can import EPUBs from files and from URLs.

    Haakon - Thanks for the updated version of the plugin. I was able to get the plugin to install with no issues using Moodle 2.7 and it functions as expected. Before approving, I would like to see some of the requested URLs for the source code, tracker and documentation so that the community can participate in giving feedback. Peace - Anthony

    p.s. - The previously mentioned copyright issues have been cleaned up and most of the coding issues are whitespace/comment related.

    Haakon - I discovered that you do have a Github account, I would suggest creating the repository moodle-booktool_importepub and adding the code there. You may also want to create branches like MOODLE_28_STABLE for each major version of Moodle. Then you can use the links to the repository for the source code URL and Github's issues for the Tracker URL. Since the code is fairly simple, you could simply point to the README file. A screenshot would be nice showing the options for importing epub (but not necessary). Peace - Anthony

    Thanks for the review Anthony. My +1 to go live with this once the missing meta-data are filled as you suggested. Haakon, you may wish to check for more details.

    Haakon contacted me and will be contacting the author of the plugin as well so that we can get the meta-data sorted out. For now, I am going to mark these as needing more work and once the meta-data is provided it can be scheduled for a quick review. Peace - Anthony

    That's a good start, thanks (hopefully the git repo will be updated with future updates, too). Can you please edit the plugin record and putt that URL into the source code URL field please?

    I think I have managed to fix most issues, and have requested a re-approval.

    Dear Haakon. is there any plan to make it compliance with epub 3?. I have created some epub using exe learning but your tool doesn't recognise the quizzes.

    Dear Carlos. Lucimoo is in compliance with EPUB 2 and EPUB 3. However, Lucimoo and EPUB is at present primarily geared towards publications, none fiction and fiction. I do not know the quality of eXe as an EPUB authoring tool. Can you check if your EPUB validates using the tool? GUI versions are available from and . If your EPUB validates, please contact me again, then we will have to dig deeper into the problem.

    Dear Haakon
    sorry, i just saw your reply today. I do apologize. in deed, it is not passing the validation. It is a pity because the exelearning files have a lot of interactions (quizzes and feedbacks activities)

    Dear Carlos,
    No worries. EPUB 3 does support interactivity, but was regarded as cutting edge in 2014, see . I think you might have more luck with exporting your interactive content to a different format, like IMS or SCORM, and then import those into your Moodle site.

    Lucimoo EPUB import version 0.17 for Moodle 3.1 is now available. smile

    Version 0.17 should work if the server uses PHP 7, while version 0.16 does not work if the server uses PHP 7.

    Version 0.16 should also work with Moodle 3.1 if the server does not use PHP 7.
