In-resource collaboration and note taking

  • Talis Elevate means you don’t need to direct your students to other parts of your LMS for further online activity. With in-resource discussion activity, you can direct your students to resources in one place, ensuring the context is at the heart of your activity.
  • Great for peer review, reflection, discussion, debate, and critique of content.
  • Students can take their own personal notes on each resource as well as engaging in class based discussion all in one place.
  • Students can also engage through anonymous commenting, giving them the confidence and ability to ask questions without concern or perceived bias.

Complements your VLE

  • Talis Elevate works within your existing Learning Management System and course pages. Lecturers and students don’t have to sign into a different tool or service, go to a different website to access any content, or to add anything to course pages.
  • You can embed individual resources, collections of resources, or a straightforward link, so you have complete control how your pages look and feel.
  • It is easy to get started with Talis Elevate, as it doesn’t require an overhaul of the teaching approach. Start with a small number of resources and quickly scale up to include more resources as you see benefits.
  • Gain a new level of insight and engagement directly within your teaching materials.
