Blackboard TLC

For its 9th edition, Blackboard’s Teaching & Learning Conference (TLC) 2018 highlight the best practices in the provision of technology-enhanced learning. This event will take place from 9th to 12th April 2018 in the University of Manchester, UK.

The agenda is full of sessions, conferences and debates, where influencers from the teaching and learning community will share their best experiences and show the latest education technology innovations. It is a network space with peers from across Europe and beyond, with more than 400 delegates from differents countries, representing more than 100 institutions.

According to the organizers, the greatest growth sector in education is expected to be in the adoption of digital textbooks, multimedia, and tools. Today’s learners are more technologically savvy, and consequently have higher expectations on the institutions they attend”.

This is why, Authôt is very proud to be part of this adventure this year, in order to introduce its innovative technology and the new partnership with Blackboard!

Our CTO, Stéphane Rabant, and our International Business Development Manager, Ganaël Charbonnel will be present at the TLC this year to show Authôt Technology and the “building block” (plug-in) developed with Blackboard to extend and enhance the Blackboard Learn experience.
This partnership maximizes efficiency in teaching and learning. As Blackboard says: our open network of over 3,000 integrations and 190 partner extensions are more than just apps they are the deepest integrations that work together to create instructor workflows that are simple yet powerful”.

Authôt building block’s plug-in

Making education and digital contents more accessible and available worldwide: is the purpose of this plug-in that works directly in Blackboard’s platform. In just few minutes teachers and students will get the transcription of learning videos. Authôt's technology transforms your conversations into text and your videos into subtitles.

Check the video to learn more about this plug-in and Authôt system, based on Automatic Speech Transcription.

Authot's Blackboard building block is the perfect solution for British colleges and universities, that must legally make digital content accessible to students with disabilities, according the Equality and Human Rights Commission of Great Britain. These educations centers have to provide Braille, large-print, or screen reader versions of coursework to students with low vision, and transcribing and captioning videos for students who are deaf or hard of hearing.

Meet us at the TLC from 9th to 12th April 2018!
