Event Details
Online Webinar using Zoom
21 May 2020

Glean is a web-based app that is designed for cognition. It has a distraction free and accessible interface that ensures the content is the focus, not the tool. Glean demands the smallest possible amount of attention to scaffold the note taking process. This enables students to independently create more authentic notes that can be integrated into wider study practices. This is more important than ever to assist students manage the current distracting environment that is remote learning.

This presentation will outline the guiding principles to Glean’s development gained from lengthy trials held in 2019. The web app can be used to capture and annotate spoken information from live lectures, streaming lectures, and blended webinar meetings.

Glean is currently freely available for the remainder of the 2020 academic year to allow all students to have access to a note taking technology during these challenging times. The content in this webinar will be of interest to equity practitioners and institution staff working towards a more accessible learning environment within the principles of Universal Design for Learning.
