This video offers an introduction to Talis Elevate (https://talis.com/talis-elevate/), a digital resource annotation tool used in the School of History and Heritage at the University of Lincoln (UK) since September 2018. Talis Elevate was initially used to foreground students' online reading practices outside class (to support collaboration, preparation and assessment), but since the pandemic it has been used in a variety of different ways across the curriculum. Talis's developers are now exploring the broader pedagogic implications of our use of this tool under the rubric 'active online reading' and welcome input from other users of Talis Elevate and similar resource annotation tools.
