General recommendations

Our recommendations for creating an effective reading list

  • Structure your list to be consistent with the subject LMS content by using sections

  • For online courses, include only resources that can be viewed online

  • Carefully consider the number of required readings that can be read within the set contact hours

  • Consider the overall number of resources students might reasonably engage with during a teaching period

Best practice examples


We recommend breaking up your reading list into sections consistent with the LMS page for the subject.

Add resources, paragraph and add sections

Subsections can be added within sections.
