How can we improve Talis Aspire Reading Lists?

Meaningful URLs

It would be great if you were able to select a meaningful URL for each readings lists (in the same way you can when posting via Wordpress, etc.) Currently the meaningless string of characters make Analytics reports hard to digest. It would also be great if academics could hand out a short, simple URL. Something along the lines of uni.readinglists.ac.uk/ENXXXX

The URLS need to maintain uniqueness. This could be lost if we attempt to make combinations of module code/title/time period etc. We could potentially end up with even longer URLS.

This idea has been declined and moved to the archive.

    This would be useful as the current report is not very helpful and in fact makes it harder to decipher where the statistic originated from

    I am using my last vote on this one. I was talking about this to Ian Corns last week so am glad you posted raised the suggestion before I managed to.

    I would also find a more straightforward URL very useful if manually linking from Aspire to our VLE.
