Adding Library Content

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

Educator Insight 

Educator Insights allows teaching staff to see levels of student engagement with reading list resources in real time. The function provides a count of  Student Access, Resource Count, Unique Student Access, and Student Engagement. 

Educator Insights is relevant for unit spaces where students are enrolled.

This guide provides an explanation of the summary and individual student data available through the product. The guide has two sections:

  1. Accessing the Block Offering summary data

Step four: Accessing student data

4.1  Student Unique Access

The Unique Student Access tool provides teaching staff with a button and icon on each of the individual resources on the Reading List which will display each student and their unique Access. It will display the Student name along with how many times that student has downloaded that resource.

At the bottom of that list, it will display a list of students who have not accessed that Resource. With this new information, teaching staff will be able to identify the degree of student engagement among their cohort of students and identify any low engagement or at-risk students.
