Talis Aspire Digitised Content (TADC) in Moodle

A new plugin has been installed in Moodle, TADC (Talis Aspire Digitised Content), which will allow you to request the digitisation of an article or book chapter through the ILS Digital Scanning Service.  For any scans you need to add to Moodle this will replace the online request form previously available through the ILS webpages.

Further details and guidance on using the new plugin can be found via the ILS Scanning Application Guidance webpages.

The new service should produce some significant improvements for you and your students including:

  • Guided, step by step process for raising requests now embedded within Moodle.
  • Fast response from TADC outlining any problems with the request so you should know within minutes if a request has been validated.
  • Reduced time between placing request and having a working link to the scanned document.
  • No PDF files to receive on email attachments so no burden on your inbox
  • No need for you to upload PDFs to Moodle.
  • Detailed statistics on Views, Downloads and Printing for each document.
  • Simplified process for making requests for the same document in more than one module – if we have already made a scan for the item the second request will be delivered within minutes of you raising it on TADC with an appropriate copyright cover sheet attached.
  • Quicker process for obtaining a new link when the module code changes.

Follow these simple steps to apply for scanned chapter or article using TADC (Talis Aspire Digitised Content) in your Moodle course:

Please contact scanning-service@yorksj.ac.uk if you have any questions or concerns about this change.  ILS would also very much like to hear any feedback you have on the new process which they hope will provide you with a better service.
