Welcome back!

Univeristy of Ediburgh LogoWe hope everyone is feeling rested and refreshed after the winter break and ready to take on the new semester.

In at Library Learning Services we’ve been working hard to ensure all submitted lists were ready for semester two. If we created a list for your class please make sure to read through the information provided in your email and then publish your list.

Don’t forget to promote your list to students!

We recommend using the course URL/web address to promote lists to students. This can be found by typing the name of your course into the search box on the homepage and selecting the ‘course’ rather than the list. The URL will look something like this: http://resourcelists.ed.ac.uk/courses/lls01.html

Using the course URL/web address instead of the URL for the list itself allows students to see all lists linked to a course and is a link that shouldn’t break. The URL for the the list itself will change each year with the rollover and will break over time

Learn and Moodle

Your resource lists can also be promoted to students in these spaces.

Information on adding the resource list tool to a Learn course is available on the IS Learn Tools website.









In Moodle a block for Resource Lists is added the same way any other block is added, by clicking on the drop down menu in ‘Add a block’ and selecting the ‘Resource Lists’ block.
More information and help on using Moodle blocks can be found in Moodle by clicking on: Home –> Hints & Tips –> Staff Help –> Moodle How To
















More information on how to make the most of Resource Lists can be found on the Resource Lists using Talis Aspire webpage and the ResourceLists@Edinburgh Blog.
