Leganto reading list

Lecturer guide

Linking to a second reading list in LEO (via LTI Direct Access)

Note: When reading lists are 'rolled over' in Leganto, a new reading list is created for the new copyright reporting period or campus.  

This means that 'LTI direct access' links will change every time a reading list is rolled over. If you roll over a LEO unit that has embedded links, these links will need to be manually edited and updated in LEO to point to the new reading list.

You can link to sections or readings listed in your reading list throughout the modules in your Leo unit

1. To retrieve the LTI direct link for your reading list, access the Leganto platform and locate the required reading list under the 'My Lists' menu. 

2. Using the ellipsis menu on the right, select 'LTI Direct Access' next to the Section or Citation you require.                                              

3. Copy the custom parameter provided to your clipboard.

4. Go to the relevant unit in LEO.

5. Turn editing on 

6. Select Add Activity and External Tool

7. In the Adding a new External tool box

  • Type a name in the Activity Name field 
  • Select Reading List from the Preconfigured tool drop down menu.
  • and click on Show more.

 

8. Scroll to the Custom parameters field and paste in the parameter you saved to the clipboard from Leganto.  (Paste = Ctl. + V).

9. Select Embed from the Launch container drop down.
 

10. Click on Save and return to unit.

Back in LEO a direct link to your reading will be displayed.

Don't forget: When reading lists are 'rolled over' in Leganto, a new reading list is created for the new copyright reporting period or LEO Unit.  

''LTI direct access' links will change every time a reading list is rolled over. These links will need to be manually edited and updated in LEO to point to the new reading list.
