How can we improve Talis Aspire Reading Lists?

Change LTI search box from grey to white

Several academic staff have commented that the LTI search box for linking lists in Canvas (possibly Blackboard/Moodle?) is greyed out. This made them think it could not be edited/typed in. By convention grey is often used to indicate disabled content.

Currently the background colour of the search box is a fixed parameter and is not customisable. I suggest changing it to a white background will help reduce the confusion, as this matches the other options available in LTI (list section). Alternatively it could be customised as part of the tenancy branding.

    This change would be very useful for UEA as well. We've frequently encountered academic staff who are unaware that the LTI box is an editable search box, which has often left them frustrated when it doesn't immediately match to the correct list. Anything that improves the visibility of the box as a search function would be a huge improvement for us!
