Subject Readings: guide for staff

Transition to next teaching period

If your reading list might be reused, do not delete it at the end of the session. This will permanently remove it from the system. If you no longer want the list to show up in 'My Lists', remove yourself as a collaborator.

Roll over a list

What is a 'roll over' and when can I use it?
When you add the Subject Readings activity to your Moodle site for the upcoming session, you can choose to roll over an existing list. The first time you use the new Subject Readings tool you won't be able to use roll over as you don't have any existing lists in the system, but you can use roll over in future.

When you roll over an existing list, you make a copy of that list to use for your new Moodle site, saving you time. You can still edit and update the list after it has been rolled over.

You will need to have been an instructor of a previous list in order to roll it over. If you want to roll over a list, but weren't its instructor, you will need to contact Learning Platform Support or Library (TBD) to get access to the previous list.

Follow these steps to make a copy of an existing list for your new Moodle site:

  1. Add the Subject Readings activity to your new Moodle site (see 'Set up your list' for how to add the tool)
  2. Click in to Subject Readings
  3. From the welcome screen, choose the Roll over option.
  4. A pop-up window will appear. Select the Moodle site whose reading list you want to copy and use for your new Moodle site. In most cases, it will be the Moodle site from the last time the subject was taught. Check the subject code and year/session code.
  5. Click 'ROLL OVER'
  6. Now you have made a copy of the previous list. You can edit, rearrange, add or delete items on your rolled over list to prepare it for the upcoming session.
