Adding Library Content

Add VU library material to unit spaces and use Readings to create a unit reading list.

Adding the Readings tool to a Unit Space

Readings provides access to online reading lists in VU Collaborate units for required and optional readings. To create a reading list in Readings you need to add the eReserve / Readings to your VU Collaborate unit space. Once added, staff can click on it to create, open and manage a reading list within the unit space.

This guide explains how to create a Readings Module and add the external learning tool, eReserve.


Step one: Add a Readings Module


1. Create a new module called Readings in the unit space. It is recommended that the module is moved to sit below the ‘Unit Guide’ module.
