How can we improve Talis Aspire Reading Lists?

RESTful API

Allow requests for simple return of list, section and item titles and urls via json.

Intended to allow finer grain integration with VLE similar to that demoed by Sussex, but without relying on web scraping:

http://blogs.sussex.ac.uk/elearningteam/2013/12/10/integrating-reading-lists-talis-aspire/

This would get the reading list content out of an iframe and into the html of the page, and allow the VLE theme to take consistent control of the display of the reading list material.

Also allows for innovation by the VLE maintainers with relation to the adding and viewing of reading lists.

Acknowledge potential issues with metrics capture Aspire side, but highly value greater freedom with UX design in VLE.

Our immediate integration focus is on creating standard integrations via LTI to enable embedding of list and list sections.

Whilst RESTFUL APIs are something we would potentially like to explore, this is not currently in our near term development focus so it has been moved to the longer term backlog.

Ideas may be graduated from the backlog as we get through the ones that are planned.
