Reading Lists

What does integrating your list mean?

Choosing to integrate your reading list into your Moodle page means that students will be able to view their readings via the Moodle platform, rather than having to click through to an external link or find it via the Library. This means that they can easily find all resources and information they need for a module in one place. We highly recommend that you do this to make your reading list more accessible for students.

You can either integrate the entire list and place this at the top of your Moodle page, or you can integrate specific parts of the reading list into specific parts of your Moodle course.

If you need any help with this, just send us an email at libline@essex.ac.uk. We are more than happy to do this for you, however we do need to be made editors of your Moodle page.

How do I integrate my Talis list into Moodle?

You first need to make sure that your reading list is published before you can integrate it into your Moodle page. Guidance on how to edit and publish your list can be found here.

The below video demonstrates how to integrate your list onto Moodle:

How to I link to my new list at the start of an new academic year?

Reading lists are rolled over at the end of an academic year, meaning that a copy of the list is made for the new time period. More information on rollover can be found here.

Unfortunately, the integration of your list on Moodle will not automatically change to display this rolled over version of the reading list for the coming academic year. This means that you just need to relink to the reading list - this is really simple and shouldn't take long.

If you need any help with this process, or would like us to do this for you, just send us an email at libline@essex.ac.uk
