NILE Aspire integration

NILE - Aspire: setting up your online reading list integration: 2020-2021

New NILE templates have been created for each module for 2020-2021.  You will need to copy across content from your 2019-2020 NILE site following the instructions provided by the Learning Technology team.  Once you have copied across your module content you are then ready to reconnect your Aspire reading list within NILE. To do this, follow the quick process outlined below.

1. Included in the module template is a Reading and Resources link in the left hand menu. 

Left side menu shows reading and resources option

2) If you click on the Reading and Resources link, you will see a Module Reading List link in the right hand pane. See the screenshot below.

3) Click on the Module Reading List link.  This will take you through to the Launch LTI Link page. Click on the Launch button. See the screenshot below. 

Note that some staff have experienced an error screen at this stage.  If this happens to you, either try clicking refresh or click on the back button and then click on Module Reading List again.  This fixes this error in most instances.

4) The system should automatically detect the right Aspire online reading list for your module.  If you want to link to your main overall reading list, select The list from the drop down menu and then click Save. You have now successfully connected your list and when your students click on the Module Reading List link they should go straight through.
