Reading list linking to Blackboard

 

 

Linking Reading List to Blackboard

Due to a change made by Blackboard in the recent upgrade, the mechanism that linked students to the reading lists is broken and cannot be repaired until the next Blackboard upgrade.  There is a manual process that creates the link and we have created a short screencast to show how to do this.  As you will see, it is easier if you have your reading list open in Talis before you open the Blackboard module in a separate tab.

  

When your reading list is open, copy the web address (using right click and copy) then go to blackboard and select ‘create web link’ in the pull-down menu (where you add content buttons).  In the web link window, add the title Reading List and then paste the web address into the url box.
