Enable list visibility

From session 202115, the Readings and Resources tool link will automatically appear in the left navigation menu of your subject i2 site.

The Readings and Resources link will be hidden from student view by default. If the link has a small square to the right, the link will not be visible to students and they will not be able to access the resources.

Enable student visibility by selecting the downward arrow and choosing Show Link from the options.
