Thank you to those of you have responded to our Future Learn survey for those that haven’t you are not too late. We are in the age of online courses being offered to all that would like to learn new skills, gain more knowledge and progress personally. We are interested in knowing whether you are being asked to create reading lists for these courses or if your academics are using them as bookmarks to lead students to learn more. We have three questions we would like to ask you in this short survey.

Developer Community
Join our developer community to find out more about APIs, and some of the technical nitty gritty that goes into successfully integrating Talis Aspire with university systems. If you would like to register to receive our developer community newsletter, please email consulting@talis.com.

University changes?
Please do remember to tell us if your University plans to make changes to any of the systems Talis integrates with, such as Library Management Systems, OPAC, Identity Providers.  A change to these without speaking to us first, may cause issues with the use of the Talis Aspire Reading Lists and Talis Aspire Digitised Content.  Giving Talis notice of these changes means we can discuss the process and options, and schedule effort as required, with the focus of removing impact to your student, academic, or library colleague users. 

Things to think about
If you would like to organise a review with the Talis team, focusing on getting the most from Talis ensuring it is working as effectively as possible for your University. Please email Alison Spencer (as@talis.com) to organise a time that works for you and your team to have a call.
