Talis Elevate

Talis - Session Sponsor

Talis Elevate is a collaborative annotation tool that builds discussion activity directly into heart of resources used in teaching, spanning text based documents, image based content, audio, video, digitisations, and 3rd party content like YouTube.

Students can engage in different ways; privately, collaboratively, anonymously, emotively, supporting a variety of student preferences to resource usage, lowering barriers to entry for student engagement.

Underpinning all of this, Talis Elevate provides new levels of analytical insight for academics and students, helping academics make informed decisions in real time around their teaching practice, learn more about student interaction, and to identify who may need more support.

Open Academia

The Open Access movement has changed the world of publishing forever. As Open Access publishing evolves and gains momentum, traditional publishing houses have a hard time keeping up. The need for author-friendly, flexible and highly configurable systems, has left many publishers in the backwaters. More and more academic societies are now turning to open source technologies to manage digital publishing on their own. And that is where Open Academia comes in.

Open Academia is ALT’s publishing partner for Research in Learning Technology.
