Using BryteWave and RedShelf to access Course Textbooks from Moodle

Lane Community College's Bookstore has partnered with Follett and RedShelf to provide text books to students as eBooks on Follett’s holding site called BryteWave. Through BryteWave, students can access course textbooks electronically (ebooks).


If the publisher of the textbook your using has an external site for course materials, such as assignments or quizzes, you may have additional setup instructions in order to utilize the publisher’s content and or activate grade book sycing between Moodle and the publishers platform if supported (i.e. McGraw Hill, Connect, Pearson…)


To add BryteWave to your course, please follow these directions:

  1. Click on the Actions Menu (the gear icon) in the top right hand corner and select Turn Editing On
  2. Scroll down to the week you want to add the BryteWave link too, and click on Add an Activity or Resource
  3. In the Activity menu, scroll till you find External Tool, select it and then add it.

  4. Name the activty “BryteWave ACCESS”. Alternatively, personalize the activity name to something more memorable to you and your students.
  5. Using the Preconfigured Tool, scroll through the menu and select BryteWave ACCESS

  6. Once you’ve finished changing the settings to your desire, scroll down and save the activity. The resource will provide a link to BryteWave’s holding site with the textbook(s) for your class.


NOTE: If a student or instructor is having any issues, then they can visit the BryteWave Knowledge Base to see if there is an article that can answer their question, or they can submit a ticket to the BryteWave Support team. If a ticket cannot be solved by the BryteWave Support team, then it will be escalated directly to RedShelf's Support team.
