Readings online

We help you create online subject reading lists for your students in the Learning Management System (LMS).You can provide electronic access to prescribed materials e.g. journal articles, book sections, conference papers, images, and movies easily as we manage copyright compliance and accessibility on your behalf and it's all managed within your subject in the LMS.

We are moving to new software for managing online readings which will offer online readings linked directly from your LMS subject so the submission process is different from previous years. We can provide support and assistance if required to help you get your readings online for Semester 1, 2015.
