Students sharing notes about reesources
One of our academics has suggested that it would be useful for some of his students to collaborate with each other when going through their reading lists. He thought that it would be helpful for students to be able to share comments they have made about resources or to add comments to the reading list itself. Students have access to collaborative tools in the VLE but this would be specifically readings-based.

I have been approached with similar requests from academics: both for students to comment collaboratively on a reading, and also a 'share' button for social media.
I have also heard this from students as part of a small research project I'm working on about reading lists.
