Aspire Guide for staff

Guidance for creating resource lists within Aspire

Aspire is a piece of software that you can use to create online reading or resource lists with links directly through to the electronic full text (e-books, e-journals, websites, videos) or to items in NELSON.  You can structure your lists thematically or annotate your lists with notes for students.  You can also use Aspire LTI integration to interweave your weekly or themed readings into the relevant sections of your module on NILE.  As well as accessing Aspire resource lists through NILE, you can also access the Aspire interface directly.

Aspire is flexible software which means that there are often multiple ways to achieve the same result.  We have tried to list some of the variables within these pages but please be aware that there may be alternative ways to complete some of the steps that are not included within these pages.
