  1. Ability to know who deleted a node

    We just discovered that a module had disappeared and Support were only able to tell us that someone had deleted it. It was definitely loaded and viewed in Aspire before. It is disappointing that we can't tell who deleted it when; can this be made possible, either for us or Support?
    I do realise this Idea partly relates to the "More granular set of edit node permissions required" - if that were implemented, the ability to delete a node could be tied down much more and at least the pool of potential deleters would be more limited!
    I realise this…

  2. Adding a favicon

    When we go to our tenancy of Aspire, there is no favicon, however it should be using our Brunel University one.

    Adding this should either be included in implementation, or should be added to the branding console (though it's not the sort of thing you want to change often, more like the main institution logo).

    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.

  4. network file bookmark

    not sure if I missed something, one of our academics asked if it were possible to bookmark a network file
    file://server/share/path/reallyUseful.doc

    naturally it would only be visible inside the university, so a restricted access label would be required

    I have suggested locating it on a web page or eLearning site, but he would like the option anyway

    backlog  ·  Keji Adedeji responded

    We will not be focusing on this now due to low votes in the 2012 ideas survey However, we think this is a valuable idea and is something we will wish to investigate in the future, so its on our longer term backlog

  5. My Notes - To be able to identify which List the Item is from

    When a student clicks on their profile and looks at 'My notes', the notes are displayed with a link to the item the note was placed on, however when clicking through to the item there is no indication as to what list or lists the item is on.

    This almost defeats the purpose of a number of notes that a student may choose to place on an item if they are then unable to identify which list the item they placed that note on came from.

    I agree that this could be confusing, especially if a student has used that feature in anger and made a lot of notes.

    However, This is not currently in our near term development focus so it has been moved to the longer term backlog.

  6. Additional supported sites for embedded video

    Youtube and Vimeo are currently supported in Talis to embed videos within the full metadata view of a bookmark.
    We've recently subscribed to EduTV, which is an excellent database of videos and playlists, and would like to have the same embedding for this resource.
    We also have a large collection of streamed media hosted in-house (both off-air and commercial material as is permitted under copyright provisions), and would like these to be similarly embedded within Talis.
    This was originally submitted as a support ticket question but it's been suggested that I raise an idea instead.

    A simple integration in the vein of the YouTube & Vimeo integrations can be dealt with via support as a bookmarking recogniser request. A tighter integration to support authenticated content will require liaising with EduTv to understand the requirements and will need to be planned.

    However, this is not currently in our near term development focus so it has been moved to the longer term backlog while we focus on items in the development focus.

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

  7. Selecting permission levels when inviting list publishers

    One of our lecturers is keen to use her list collaboratively with students and staff but is reluctant to invite all the students as list publishers, because they would be given all the permissions. She would just want them to add resources to the list to share. Could a checkbox be added to the list of permissions so a list owner could select which permissions to assign?

    Permissions are tied to roles, so I’m not sure we would expose the permissions. However, it is a good idea to allow the list owner to determine the capabilities given to people they invite to share their list e.g.providing the option to invite publishers or invite list creator (where that role is configured with the correct permissions). This is on the Backlog for now as we would like to look at this, but at a later date

  8. New reports - most popular books or resources

    We have Aspire linked to our Library catalogue so any book (journal, DVD etc) on a published reading list shows the titles of the modules that book is used on. For the Aquisitions team this is useful to see how the same book may be being used across the University as sometimes it is being used in more than one subject area and, therefore different funds.

    I'd like to suggest that it would be useful to list the top (eg) 100 resources so we can see which resources are being used the most and ensure we have sufficient stock.

  9. Node level "List creator" role

    We would like to give list creator roles at a node or department level. At the moment, it is only available at tenancy level. We would like to limit users' ability to create lists anywhere, but allow them to create them as necessary in their department's area.

    We are not going to focus on this right now but we do plan to visit this as part of a wider look at how we manage scoping and hierarchy

  10. Resource Type - Event

    We're seeing academics add materials to resource lists which are effectively temporal 'events' of some kind which students are expected to attend (physically or virtually) as part of their research.

    'Events' could incorporate Exhibitions, live Webinars, Lectures, Screenings, Seminars, Conferences, Plays, Training sessions, et al

  11. Resource Type - 'Social media' (or similar)

    We've not been able to identify a better label for this, but are open to suggestions. The intention is to distinguish blog, forum, social media and web 2.0 type content from 'traditional' Web Site and Web Page types. It's the difference between referencing material on the BBC News site and referencing a debate on an internet forum, or the discussion which follows a blog post

  12. Resource Type - Review

    Academics quite regularly add Reviews and review articles (from academic journals, professional publications and newspapers) for students to critically evaluate.
