The Strategic Approach to Learning Resources

With the introduction of higher fees and TEF and the increasing use of blended learning to deliver modules, universities have been investing in their physical environment, creating more work spaces for individual and group study, making their libraries a hub and an integral part of teaching and learning and are now investing even more in learning resources that support student research and study.

Aspire Connect is an end to end solution for universities who want to provide learning resources directly to their students. We have worked on major initiatives such as Coventry’s Flying Start (previously No Hidden Extras) and Middlesex’s personal eBook scheme that sees all students receive a core textbook for each module they take (delivered alongside our partner Kortext) to smaller schemes such as Worcester’s Reach programme that provides students with tablets preloaded with content and resources.

Aspire Connect will source your resources, will deliver them directly to your students, will drive usage and engagement and provide data and analytics on that usage and engagement.
