LTI custom parameter for message when no list available.
This year Griffith has moved from using the Talis building block in Blackboard to using the LTI. This is set up by default to use "best guess" to display a reading list for a course site using the custom parameters nodecoderegex and timeperiodregex. The Readings LTI link is present in the Blackboard course template, so is present for every course site that is created. Not all courses have reading lists; when this is the case, academics have to make this link not available to students or delete it. If this is not done and students click on the Readings LTI link, the Talis search screen is displayed, which is not particularly helpful for students (or staff).
In the building block, there are configuration settings to:
(a) Supply the text of a message to display to staff when no resource is present in a module/course.
(b) Supply the text of a message to display to students when no resource is present in a module/course.
Would it be possible to add a custom parameter to the LTI that could achieve the same thing, i.e. display a message for staff and/or students when no reading list is found for a course site?
