You have two options when it comes to how you want your list to be available via Moodle:
To make the reading list accessible from Moodle as a link in the boxes on the side, you have to 'Add a Block' and select 'Reading Lists'. When you have a published list that is linked to the hierarchy, it will appear in this block as below:
Choosing to integrate your reading list into your Moodle page means that students will be able to view their readings alongside all other information for the course, rather than having to click through to a different platform.
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.
Integrating specific parts of the reading list into specific parts of your Moodle course works best if you structure your Talis list in the same way that you structure your Moodle page. For example, if you have weekly readings on Talis and weekly sections on Moodle, then you can integrate week one readings under the week one section and so on.
To integrate all or part of your reading list onto Moodle, you need to select 'Add an Activity or Resource' and choose 'Course Reading List'. You then need to fill in the following details:
Once you have filled in the details, you can then click 'Link to resource list or section'. When you have a published list linked to the hierarchy, it should appear; if it does not, you can search for the module code.
Select which section you want to link to from the dropdown menu. The default setting will be 'The list', meaning the whole list would be imbedded. You can select any section that you have created. Once you've selected the section you want, click 'save'.
The below video demonstrates how to integrate your list onto Moodle:
The option of integrating is particularly helpful if you like to have recommended articles or weekly readings directly available with each lecture.
