With Kortext you’ll be able to:
With Kortext’s Academic Portal, you can easily search the Kortext inventory to find the academic texts you require. Once you’ve found your chosen texts, you can instantly add them as desk copies to your bookshelf – seamlessly enhancing the text selection process.
If you’re happy with the desk copies, you can request the module texts directly through the Academic Portal by simply adding them to your basket, customising quantities and module codes and submitting them through to the librarian.
We connect Kortext with your university’s virtual learning environment (VLE). No matter whether you are using Microsoft Teams, Blackboard, Canvas or Moodle, we’ll link Kortext to your system. Your students will be able to access their course material that you’ve allocated them via a single sign on.
With unified access and workflow integration, you’ll improve your students experience and maintain engagement in their learning.
With our analytics dashboard you’ll be able to see exactly what your students are doing. At a glance you’ll see which students are engaged with a text and which are not for you to intervene where necessary.
You’ll gain an insight into what’s working and what’s not to improve your course delivery and student engagement.
Its important to get your students started on their learning journey right from the very beginning. You’ll be able to assign reading requirements to your student so they are ready to do from their Induction week.
We’ll guide you through the process and provide the support you need to get it set up.
With the Kortext platform, you’ll be able to collaborate with your students effectively to drive student engagement.
As the only Microsoft approved e-Textbook app for Microsoft Teams, students will have quick and easy access to the right section of their course material to collaborate and share.
You’ll be able to create learning groups, assign reading and initiate class discussions. From Teams, a student can read a book and create and share notes, both with their teachers and peer to peer. These interactive features will enable richer context and improve student engagement.
