Once you have created your reading list, you can do the following with your readings:
Each reading will have one of the statuses below associated with it at any time:
Readings will appear under ungrouped readings in the order in which they were added to Readings Online. You can organise your readings into folders or groups as required; e.g. 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; e.g. Week 1 – Journal Articles, Week 1 – Books and Book Chapters, etc.
(1) Create and name the folders
To create a new group, click on New group

(2) Move readings
Items that have not been sorted into any folders will sit at the top of the Reading List in the "Ungrouped readings". Please note that individual items can not be replicated within your Reading List to be moved into different weekly folders; i.e. one item per folder.
Move one reading at a time: Click on a reading, then drag and drop it in the target group.

Move multiple readings at a time: Readings can be selected in bulk using check boxes and either dragged into place or moved using the ‘Move to’ menu at the top.
Check the student view: Use the student view button to preview what students see of your reading list.
Use the collapse all and expand all buttons to quickly review readings in each group.
You can use the ‘hide’ button in the main panel to keep selected readings from the student view. To remove a reading from a current reading list, hide the reading. To re-add a reading, unhide the reading.
Reader statistics are automatically collected and displayed next to each reading. These counts are reset each time a reading is rolled over. For a full statistical report, please contact us.
