Talis launches Talis Aspire to improve access to textbooks

UK universities will be able to deliver core eTextbooks directly into courses

Posted by Stephanie Broad | October 30, 2016 | Product news

Talis, provider of course resource management solutions, is launching Talis Aspire to allow universities to deliver core eTextbooks directly into courses.

Talis Aspire is already used in more than 60% of UK universities, but the latest developments will make core course texts more accessible for students. Institutions will be able to use the software to source core eTexbooks directly from publishers and embed them into courses.

The new workflows reduce the barriers for libraries looking to start or pilot projects and minimise friction for institutions looking to scale programmes. Talis Aspire will streamline the process of communication between the faculty and the library, making it easier to identify and buy core texts. Its integration with university systems means that information can be kept in one place. Students will be able to access the resources, via the Talis Player, from their official reading lists and from their learning management system.

We are excited about this unique opportunity for Talis to enable universities and publishers to work together to deliver core eTextbooks directly and seamlessly into the learning context - David Errington, CEO at Talis

“For many years, we have been providing a proven and robust solution for managing and delivering digital learning resources and official course reading lists, at scale, to support learning and teaching through Talis Aspire. With initiatives such as the Teaching Excellence Framework on the horizon, Library Directors are seeking more ways to enhance their support for learning and teaching.” said David Errington, CEO at Talis, “We are excited about this unique opportunity for Talis to enable universities and publishers to work together to deliver core eTextbooks directly and seamlessly into the learning context.”
