The Description field for the resources Book, IMS and Lesson never show when viewing the resource. It shows only on the course page, if so has bee selected, and when editing the resource.
This is inconsistent in regard to other resources / activites, and even if it might be logical that those specific resources don't show the description, it is really confusing for the users. We have had several cases where the teacher has put important info there, without knowing that the students could not see it.
Our workaround is to write those exceptions in the language strings moduleintro and showdescription_help, but that's an ugly fix since it shows when adding or editing all resources and activities.
Separate label strings for those resources, with an explanation.
Make those resouces function in the same way as the rest.
