Learning, teaching and assessment licensing portfolio

The learning, teaching and assessment portfolio within Jisc licensing is focused around license agreements that support and enable digital transformation, and align with institutional, sectoral and government priorities. We will continue to enhance this targeted and evidence-informed approach to support and enable the digital transformation of learning, teaching and assessment across all academic levels. Our current priorities for clusters of licensed solutions will address the strategic challenges and opportunities faced by institutions, including:

  • Accessibility and inclusivity
  • Assessment and feedback
  • Digital skills and capabilities
  • Employability and skills
  • Literacy and numeracy
  • Personalised learning
  • Simulation and experiential learning
  • Student engagement and success

Priority disciplines include STEM, covering construction and green technology, medicine and allied health, nursing, business, digital and IT. Within these areas, Jisc will continue to prioritise license agreements that leverage new and emerging technologies, including the transformative potential of AI and immersive technologies. Working with a range of suppliers and vendors, the clusters are being developed to ensure an array of options are available and encourage competition. All licenced solutions are also set against due diligence standards and procurement requirements, including digital accessibility, software and/or hardware compatibility, and best practice in data protection and cyber security; and they ensure that content, delivery and pricing models are highly relevant and support sector aims.
