This is also how most of your students access to the lists you have published.

On the right-hand side of each of your modules in Moodle, you should see the following box. If you see link/s in the box, they will take you to the RLO system and display the list you clicked on. ( If you see a message saying "No reading lists found" you will not have a link to RLO, therefore, use one of the other methods here to navigate to RLO)
