What is read!t?

Abgebildet ist eine Hand, die ein weißes Buch aus einer Reihe von Büchern aus einem Bibliotheksregal zieht. Das Buchcover trägt den Schriftzug "readit".

The reading list management system read!t helps teachers compile clearly structured reading lists quickly and easily.

read!t is accessed via MyLEARN, or Canvas, and reading lists are linked to the online course catalog and course syllabi.


We launched the pilot phase in selected courses in the 2020 summer semester. Since January 2021, lecturers and list creators have the opportunity to activate read!t directly via MyLEARN.

Starting with entering the course information for the online course catalog for the summer semester 2023, read!t replaced the conventional way of publishing reading lists in the syllabus.

For WU's reading lists please visit the read!t portal:
