Talis Elevate Guidance for Students
What is it?
Talis Elevate is a tool to support your active engagement with the resources your teachers recommend for your learning. It aims to improve the delivery of resources to you by enabling you to engage directly with these resources. With Talis Elevate you can leave comments on texts, images, and media uploaded by your lecturer. You can also collaborate directly within your classmates within the resources you are all using together for your learning.
Additionally, Talis Elevate has a ‘personal notes’ feature, which allows you to take and keep your notes all in one place alongside the resources you are using for your learning.
Why use it?
Talis Elevate will help your learning in the following ways:
- By deepening your understanding: leaving a comment can help you work through what you are reading, seeing, or viewing
- By enabling you to build knowledge together: with Talis Elevate, you can learn alongside your classmates and lectures, inside and outside of class
- By increasing your confidence: you can comment anonymously or personal notes which only you have access to. This enables you personalise your learning
Teaching staff will offer instructions and suggestions on how to use Talis Elevate within particular modules via Blackboard sites and module handbooks. If you have any questions, please email them (you can find your lecturers’ contact details in the contact section on your Blackboard module).
