Leganto - Create Lists for Course Readings & Resources

A guide for instructors.

List Sections

Sections help you organize your list.

Because citations are kept in sections, you must add at least one section to your list.

If you have no existing sections, you'll be prompted to add one to a list before you can add citations. If you choose a template, sections will already be there for you, but you can add or delete sections to suit your material.

For more details, see "Working with Sections" below.

Quick Start: Use a Template to Add Sections

When you create a list, you can select a pre-existing template that automatically adds sections, or a blank one to create your own sections. Regardless of which one you choose, you can add, remove, rename, and rearrange sections to your liking; templates just help to get you started.

If you're not sure how you'll organize your readings, select a blank template.

Templates are provided for:

  • weekly organization of readings: 12 or 6 sections
  • module organization of readings
  • blank - you create your own sections

Advanced: Working with Sections

You can (but you don't need to) organize your citations into sections. These sections could be course topics, weekly readings, modules, document types - whatever works best for your course structure.

Every list needs at least one section, because citations are always placed in a section.

When you create a list, you can choose an existing template that includes sections, or a blank template with no sections. Whichever you choose, you can change the sections to your liking as you work on it.

See below for brief descriptions for what you can do with sections.
