Subject readings are resources for your subject like ebooks, journal articles, book chapters, websites and videos. Resources may also be listed in the Subject Outline. Check with your Subject Coordinator if unsure. To cite sources correctly, use the style specified in your Subject Outline and refer to UOW Referencing Style Guides.
Click the tick to the right of the title.
Or, click the ellipsis [...] to the right of the title and select 'Mark as done'.
Subject coordinators can see how many students have marked an item as done, but not the names of individual students.
Your lecturer may add public notes to items to tell students additional instructions or information about the reading.
Click 'Add tag' below the item's title. Type your tag in the field, for example Use for essay or Exam prep. Press 'Enter'.
Tags added by you are blue and can be removed using the 'X'. Tags added by your subject coordinator, such as the Essential and Recommended tags, are green.
To search for items with a particular tag, use the 'Filter list' icon in the top menu.
To make a note, click the title of an item to open the detailed record. Scroll down to the 'Private note' section. Click 'Add private note'. Type your note in the field and click 'Save'. Private notes are only visible to you.
Click the item title to open the detailed record, then under 'Links & Availability' click the mark as broken button to the right of the link that is broken.
Click a title to open the detailed record. Then in the top right corner, click the heart icon to like an item. Subject coordinators can see the number of likes, but not the names of students who liked the item.
Use the Student Discussion at the list level to comment on the list as a whole. To comment about a specific reading, click its title and use the Student Discussion in the right hand panel to discuss or ask a question about that specific item. Comments are public and can be seen by other students and teaching staff.
If there is a PDF in your reading list, such as a scanned book chapter, you can highlight sections of text and add comments using the speech bubble icon. If public annotations are enabled by your subject coordinator, you can choose whether your comment is public (visible to other staff and students) or private (only for your reference). If public annotations are not enabled, you will not see the Public or Private radio buttons and your comment will automatically be private. Note: A downloaded copy of the PDF will not show any comments that you or others have made.
You can also draw a shape around a feature in the document, such as an image or table, and add a comment. Use the 'Shape' icon above the PDF.
If you want to read the original document without the overlay of annotations and highlighting, use the 'Hide annotations' button at the top right of the PDF.
