Managed federation
Jisc has operated the UK Access Management Federation for over 10 years, developing considerable knowledge, expertise, and infrastructure. Other NRENs and knowledge communities want to provide similar identity federation services for their users, but it can be complex and expensive. This solution greatly reduces the cost and difficulty of provision.

Next generation digital learning
Through digital, students and staff are more connected and have access to more information than at any other time in history. What does this mean for learning and teaching? How will technology impact our practice? We are looking at technology and academic behaviours to enhance sector understanding of these issues.

Open metrics lab
In modern research management the limitations of traditional citation-based metrics are well understood, and there is demand within the sector for more ‘responsible’ metrics to inform policy and decision making. The open metrics lab aims to enable practical tests and experimentation with open metrics to support these goals.

The vision is simple. When an academic starts a lecture, he or she logs on to Konnect via a website and starts a new session. Students’ smartphones then automatically find that session and can use it to answer quizzes, receive feedback, ask questions and engage with the lecturer.
