The Aspire resource list module enables a teacher to include a selection of resources from associated Talis Aspire resource lists directly within the content of their course.

The resource list can be displayed either in a separate, linked page, or embedded in the course page itself (hidden initially, with a link to toggle visibility).

The development of this module was based on previous work by the University of Sussex and Falmouth Exeter Plus (on behalf of Falmouth University).

Please note that this plugin depends on a paid subscription to the Talis Aspire reading lists service.

    Hi Ijaz,

    It should work fine with a tenancy that has an HTTPS alias but in the config you still need to enter your Aspire base (HTTP) URL (ask your librarian if you don't know it).

    If you've already done that, please PM me a screen shot of your config page and I'll look into it.

    Cheers,
    Tony

    Would it be possible to add 'School' as one of the options for the 'Knowledge group' code... he asked, very hopefully smile
    It is a valid node type on the Talis Aspire hierarchy data format if that helps.

    Yes, I can do that. Are there any others missing?

    You’re amazing smile
    The valid nodes are at http://support.talis.com/hc/en-us/articles/205860631-Hierarchy-data-format - but I doubt they all need to be in.

    I've added them all anyway, just in case. If you're a Git user, you can cherry-pick the commit at https://github.com/tonyjbutler/moodle-mod_aspirelist/commit/5d16783db1e85b35741a42213f8d76461d51337a. Otherwise let me know and I'll create a new release.

    Hi there

    I'm currently having problems with plugin version 2.9.5. We have the following settings:

    Aspire URL: http://myreadinglists.kcl.ac.uk
    Aspire URL HTTPS alias: https://kcl.rl.talis.com
    Aspire Code Regex: ^([0-9A-Z]{8})
    Year Code Regex: (2012|2013|2014|2015|2016|2017|2018)[A-Z]

    The rest of the settings remain blank or default.

    Any assistance would be gratefully received,

    Hi Kevin,

    You just need to include delimiters around your regular expressions e.g. /^([0-9A-Z]{8})/ and /(2012|2013|2014|2015|2016|2017|2018)[A-Z]/ should work fine.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,
    Tony
