What it is

Elevator is a website developed by Jisc. The purpose of the site is to explore new ways of gathering ideas that have the potential to improve education and research for the people working in the UK further, higher education and skills sectors.

How it works

When an elevator is open for ideas any eligible person can submit an idea via a short video pitch accompanied by a brief text description.

Most elevators allow people to vote on the ideas. Anyone can vote for any idea. You are also free to leave comments.

Any idea that reaches its voting target will be considered for funding.

Who it's for

We see real benefits in the Elevator platform being used for universities, colleges and learning providers and we’d be interested to hear how you might use the format – for example, to encourage entrants to a competition, to  invite student societies to bid for funding, or to generate feedback. See how to apply to run an elevator.

At Jisc we provide digital solutions for UK education and research.

The site was developed using Drupal by Mickey and Mallory.
