Ebook Authoring - Ebook Element library

In Learnworlds, you can create and edit your own e-books so you can offer your users professional courses with the most interesting yet well-customized content.

After creating your course and an e-book learning activity hover over it. Click on Edit ebook.

Add Elements

At the top of the Ebook authoring window, you can see some classic tools of a text editor. To insert a new element, click on the + Add element on the far right of your screen.

Types of Elements

Under + Add element, choose the element you prefer depending on your needs, among Headings, Simple Text, Images & Text, Columns & Text, Emphasis, Educational Blocks, Embed, and Links.


You can use Headings to set the core of your Ebook and separate it into sections and subsections.

Simple Text

Here you can insert a new paragraph for your Ebook, a table, a conclusion, as well as a list if you want to outline concepts in a more comprehensive way.

Images and Text

You can choose between elements that give you the option to upload an image and cover the whole width of the page, fill in the label below or on the left of the image. Also, you can start your paragraph with a photo aligned on the left or on the right side of the image, or even you can upload a photo and write a “quote”.

Columns and Text

You can find a lot of elements where columns with text or images and text can be inserted in any way you like. You can use them to outline, present, compare or summarize the basic characteristics of your subject’s content by choosing the template that meets your needs.


It is an option to insert some ready formats for your texts which you can use to mark something special in your work.

Educational Blocks

Here are some blocks that are sure to help you in your educational process. You can add to your Ebook three different types of Paragraphs (Try, Question and Alarm) and two types of Quotes


Here you can insert an embeddable code to make your eBook more interesting, creative and innovative (for example you can insert videos, slides, etc.). All you have to do is paste the embed code and the dimensions (width and height) of your element.

Visit the website of the content you want to embed and copy its embeddable code. 

Example: Embed a video from YouTube

To embed a video from YouTube, go to the page of this specific video and click on Share.

When the new window pops up click on Embed.

Copy the embeddable code of your video.

Paste it into the frame of the Embed element and click on Save.

If you want to paste embeddable code from other sources, such as SlideShare, Soundcloud, Pixton and others, you follow the same steps, click on the Share and Embed buttons, and copy the embeddable code.


  • You can also embed a video that has already been uploaded to your LearnWorlds Video library by following the guide in this article.
  • Embed files should be set to public in order to be reachable from users.

You can add a URL link, insert a tip, or link to one of your school pages. Mark your text before you enter the Links section and, once you insert this element, the Ebook Links Manager appears so you can edit them. Right-click on it and add your tip. Users will notice a difference because the text in which you inserted the tip is blue and it comes with an orange bulb. Once they click on it, a small window will pop up with the information you added.

Note: If you wish your material not to be copied by users who mark the text and copy it (CTRL + C), all you need to do is add in the Custom Code → Site custom code → <body> logged in (HTML) the following snippet:

var ebookPlayer = document.querySelector('.slug-ebookplayer');
if (ebookPlayer) {
ebookPlayer.addEventListener('copy', function (e) {e.preventDefault()});
ebookPlayer.addEventListener('cut', function (e) {e.preventDefault()});
ebookPlayer.addEventListener('dragstart', function (e) {e.preventDefault()});
