How can we improve Talis Aspire Reading Lists?

Implement time periods within Aspire

Allow an administrator to specify a list of time periods in Aspire. A time period is made up of a label, a start date and an end date (example - "Autumn Term 10/11", "1st Sept 2010", "31st December 2010").

List editors will be able to optionally assign a list to a given time period.

The time period will be visible from the list outline view, and also within the linked lists table on the module view.

An extension of the linking API will be developed so that the VLE can link directly to all lists for a given time period, e.g.

http://myaspireurl/modules/abf203/autumn-term-10-11/lists

    Our VLE Learning Room format that we need to reflect in Aspire is:

    [Module_Code]: [Title] [AcademicYear] [Type]

    As in:

    COMP30171: Comp Intelligence 200910 Half Year 2

    So what I'm imagining is that in this academic year, the Module COMP30171 will have the List above associated with it.

    As part of the end-of-year process that List (and all others) would be 'rolled forward' with the academic year value 200910 replaced by 201011 to create a second list associated with the module namely:

    COMP30171: Comp Intelligence 2001011 Half Year 2

    This would support exactly the kind of deep-linking syntax that Chris describes, and would also support the use of business rules to manage List visibility (against temporal/data thresholds).

    I'm hoping that this will support the one-to-one VLE Learning Room instance to Aspire Reading List instance that we're hoping for
