Talis reading lists

Talis enables structured and accessible course readings.

Talis integrates with Canvas, simplifying the process of accessing course readings. Teachers can categorise readings, enabling students to know what to focus on and when. Access data is also available and provides some indication of student engagement. To encourage deeper engagement, consider adding a Perusall activity.

Talis also enables the University to meet its financial obligations for provisioning copyright material, thus rewarding the contribution of authors.

Talis supports these learning types (see definitions):


Accessing Talis through Canvas

Students access course readings through the Reading Lists menu in Canvas. Teachers will need to associate their Talis reading list with the course.

Access Talis directly

Teachers can access Talis reading lists outside of Canvas. From there they can view lists they might have created in the past, along with those created by their colleagues.
