How can we improve Talis Aspire Reading Lists?

Ability for a tenancy to add their own messages to Aspire users on the Home page

It would be very useful for an individual tenancy to customise an area on the Home page of Aspire - I kind of news feed area, possibly scrolling text. We could keep users informed of any down time or alert users to new developments on Aspire.

    I would just add to this comment that academic staff are also posting links to the reading list directly into Moodle so, again, they are by-passing the Home page

    Monash supports the development of editing functionality on this page to be able to post news/important notifications/alerts/etc. For example, every year we have to suppress all the links to the digitised material for our copyright licensing agency's reasons. We are unable to post a warning about this to the Home page at present.

    We would like to insert an alert into a 'News' box rather than use scrolling text.

    Expanding upon this editing theme, it would be useful to have the ability to post alerts at the list level also since our students now have access to their own reading lists via their student portal page and may not go to the Home page. We would not wish to have to edit each list individually, if Aspire was to go down, so an alert that could be inserted into all lists en masse would be preferable.
