What is Category?
The Category helps with assigning textbooks in Interactive or managing textbooks in Cloud by presenting the textbook’s category name (as class name or subject name). A Category is not created when assigning textbooks but selected from the Category list created by the group management staff.

 

Textbook status
The textbook has 2 status options and each status allows a different level of download.

  • Inactive : The textbook is uploaded on Cloud by the textbook management staff but it is not downloadable.
  • Active : The textbook can be assigned to a class and downloaded.
  • Delete : All the textbook information is deleted from Cloud but books already downloaded are not deleted and can still be used. A download notice will no longer be provided.

Tip : When a textbook is deleted, there will not be any notification sent to the teacher or students. Be sure not to delete the textbooks being used for the classes.
