Click the "Create It" button to create a new reading list from scratch.
Add the title of the course. This is the name students will see for the list. A description is not required but is a good place to add the instructor's name or other course information. Click the "Create" button.
Select a template to organize the readings. You can organize by week, by module, separate required readings from recommended, or work with a blank template to organize as you see fit.
Please select "Create a new reading list from scratch" instead of "Upload a document containing an existing reading list". This will make sure that you will be able to use all the features in Course Reserves.
