Reading List: Accessing Reading List

Creating unit reading lists

Accessing Reading List in Black Board

1) In BB Original, select Add menu item (+) and select Tool Link from the drop down menu.

2) In Add Tool Link use Reading List as the Name, to ensure that the same name is used across all CDU units.

Select Reading List as the Type.

Tick the box Available to Users - once the unit opens, the Reading List will be accessible to students. If you don't want the Reading List visible once the unit opens, do not tick the box Available to Users and follow step #3 below when you would like to make it visible. 

Submit.

Reading List will be added to your left side menu. 

3) If you did not tick the box Available to Users when adding Reading List to the BB menu (see #2 above), you have to make the Reading List visible to students. To do this, click on the down arrow behind Reading List and select Show Link

If unsure:

If the drop-down has the option Show Link, the Reading List is not visible to students.

If the drop-down has the option Hide Link, the Reading List is already visible to students. 

4) To create a new Reading List or to edit an existing Reading List, simply click on Reading List.
