Readings will appear under ungrouped readings in the order in which they were added to Readings Online.  You can organise your readings into groups as required for example by week, topic or format.   It is only possible to have one level of content folders.  If you wish to have sub-folders, you will need to include it in the top level folder, for example, Week 1 – Journal Articles, Week 2 – Books and Book Chapters etc.
