Finding Lists

Click on Find Lists in the left side navigation pane. 

Here you may search by list title, module title, module code or module instructors. 

Select the required list from the search results.

You may select the Add button at the top to follow this list. This will add it to your My Lists page for easier navigation later. 

Creating a New List

Select the My Lists tab on the left side navigation panel.

Select + New list.

new list button

This will produce a dropdown menu where you can add the title and description of your Reading List. 
(You may also import a .lgn file here, if you have exported an existing list). 

Give your reading list a title. This should be the module code followed by the title of the module (e.g. ASQ201 Theories and Methods in Social Work). Add an optional description and click Create.

Select a template. We currently recommend that you use the Swansea University Reading List Template, which organises your list into the following sections:

  • Essential reading
  • Recommended reading
  • Background reading
  • Other reading

Select a Blank template if you would prefer to create your own list structure, e.g. teaching weeks, subjects, reading priority, etc.

You must associate your list with its module to make it visible to students in Canvas. This can done when prompted, or later by going to the list options and clicking Manage course association.
