As of September 2019, BlackBoard Learn no longer supports Internet Explorer.  Please select an alternative browser to ensure access to BlackBoard Learn and your reading list materials.  New authentication steps have also been introduced as part of access to your reading list through BlackBoard.

Our recommendation is to access BlackBoard Learn, and your reading list, though Google Chrome.  

How do I authenticate to my reading list through Chrome (recommended)?

  1. Navigate to BlackBoard Learn and log in as necessary
  2. Locate the course where you wish to access your reading list
  3. Select Talis Reading List from the menu bar on the left hand side
  4. You will see an authentication screen in the central pane.  Click the green button to continue.  Note if you are off-campus you may be asked to enter your network credentials.

  5. A separate window will open and complete the authentication.
  6. You will then be asked to 'login to access resource'.  Click the green 'login' button.
    Click the green button - login
  7. You are now able to view your reading list.  
     

How do I authenticate to my reading list through Edge?

  7. You will then be asked to 'login to access resource'.  Click the green 'login' button.
    Click the green button - login
  8. Click the green 'continue' button:

How else can I access my reading list?

You can access your reading list directly via https://brunel.rl.talis.com/.  You can then search for the relevant course, ie. EN2016.   You can access your reading list in this way through current versions of Internet Explorer (IE), FireFox, Chrome, Safari and Microsoft Edge.
