During one of our routine Services calls with Harper Adams University, Matt Bryan, librarian was explaining about the progress made with academic engagement following a session he ran, inspired by Allie Taylor’s Insight Europe 2017 presentation and the implementation of Talis Aspire’s Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) integration.

LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability) allows you to integrate your Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) or Learning Management System (LMS) with Talis Aspire Reading Lists (find out more about LTI here). The new list view combined with LTI brings all of the student facing improvements to lists to the one place where students are most likely to see it.

New student list view: an update

At Talis Insight Europe 2017, we revealed a new student list view for Talis Aspire reading lists. Since then, we have been working on a beta programme with a handful of customers, to get it ready for roll-out.

In November, we hosted two events to discuss the topic of academic engagement for recently joined customers and for institutions who are not yet using Talis. These events were kindly co-hosted by Northumbria University and UCL (University College London). We wanted to find out more about how our universities have successfully tackled the challenge of academic adoption and provide some more information on how Talis supports this.
