Readings at UniSA are provided using eReserve. eReserve is an add-on for Moodle that gives course developers control over reading lists. You are able to add readings and control how and where they are presented to students.
Start from a course site in LearnOnline. Choose the Resources menu and select eReadings.
The benefits of utilising the eReserve system include:
Reading lists are integrated with learnOnline, and you can embed readings directly on your course pages. You can add readings to your course reading list, and roll lists over to new courses or study periods very easily; in most cases, these readings will be made available to students without delay. Furthermore, you can use eReserve to make requests for resources not currently accessible via the Library; it’s usually a quick process.
Through eReserve, Library staff can apply their expert knowledge in seeking and applying the best possible access to resources. Students can also seek assistance with readings and eReserve through the Ask the Library service, removing the need for course facilitators to play the ‘middle man’.
Both students and course facilitators experience a consistent user experience when readings are presented through the centralised eReserve system.
Library staff have procedures in place to ensure readings presented in eReserve meet the access requirements of all students.
eReserve provides a wide range of real-time analytics for student engagement with readings.
Placing items in eReserve ensures that you and UniSA do not unknowingly breach the Copyright Act, and that we effectively record what copyrighted works are made available electronically to students. All UniSA staff must adhere to the limits and regulations of the Copyright Act.
