Welcome to the Elevator

Jisc's website for gathering ideas that have the potential to improve higher and further education. It is under development and is currently not open for new ideas. So far Jisc has used it for a couple of experimental competitions. You can see the ideas submitted during the recent Summer of Student Innovation competition in the archive. 

We know there are other ways to use the elevator to help further and higher education in the UK. So if you have an idea for using the elevator please get in touch.
