How to get the most out of your subject readings at JCU

Publishing a list

Note your Reading list must be published before you can add it to LearnJCU.

If you have unpublished changes there will be a notice at the top of the list. Click Publish to make your changes visible to students.


Adding reading list sections to LearnJCU

A link to the full reading list is automatically included in the LearnJCU subject site template. Use these instructions to link sections from your Readings list.

There are two steps to adding a Reading list section to Ultra:

  1. Add the Readings link to the subject site
  2. Activate the link so it is visible to students

Adding Readings list sections to Ultra as a link

  2. Navigate to where you’d like your Readings link to be added (within or outside of a content folder).
  3. Click on the '+' icon, and select 'Content Market'
  4. In the Content Market panel, click on the '+' (in the bottom-right) in the Readings panel for staff (do not click on the 'Student access to Readings' panel)
  5.  A link to Readings within your subject content will be created in Ultra

To activate the Readings link:

  1. Click on the Readings link you just created
  2. The Readings window will open
  3. Use the dropdown menu indicated below to select the list or the section you want and click “Save”.
    If there is more than one Reading list for the subject make sure you have chosen the correct list.
  4. Close the library Readings panel
  5. To change the name of the link
    • Click on the '...' (more options) icon to the far-right of your Readings link to edit the text
    • A side panel will open with editing options for the text in your Readings link
