Reading Lists: a guide to creating and maintaining your reading list: FAQs

A guide for University of Plymouth staff


If you created your Reading Lists directly through Leganto and not through Moodle, and you did not associate the list with a Moodle course at the beginning, you can still associate your list to a course or multiple courses when you are ready.

Select the Reading Lists options icon (the 'three dots'), then select the Manage Course Association option to add, edit, or remove a course association. Type in the course ID - you should see courses for which you are listed as the instructor.

Yes, go to 'manage collaborators' on the right hand side of your list, click 'invite collaborators' and type in the name of the person you would like to add.

You will need to publish your list and make sure it is associated to the module before it is visible to students.

My Collection' is your own personal Leganto library. You can use this space to save interesting resources that you would like to access later. These resources can be anything from a book, a journal article, a YouTube video, a webpage, etc.

Students can contribute to discussion threads in a couple of ways. The Student Discussion feature is available at the list level, and at the individual citation level.

You can respond to the comment, or you can delete the comment by selecting the trash can icon. A confirmation message will appear: select OK to delete the comment.

Discussions are only accessible by people with access to the reading list - generally students and staff in the subject.

Disabling the Discussions feature

If you decide you don't want to have the student discussion feature in your list, you can easily disable it:

Click on the ellipsis ( ... ) (Reading list options) at the top of your reading list Select Configure list discussions, and select Hide student discussion thread.

You can get Analytics of your reading list in the Reports section in Leganto, available from the left menu. The Reports screen shows three tabs of reports: Analysis, Usage, and Inactive.

* The Usage tab gives an overview of the number of students interacting with the citations on your list.

* The Inactive tab will contain reports of your reading lists from previous sessions.

* On the Analysis tab you should see two reports that give an overview of the activity on your reading list. Subject site Instructors will also be able to see how many people have clicked on the citation. This is indicated by an eye with the number of views next to it on each reading in the list.
