JISC Elevator – Bringing Ideas to Fruition
http://elevator.jisc.ac.uk/

 JISC elevator is a platform for crowd sourcing ideas that will use technology to improve education and research in UK higher and further education institutions. The purpose of JISC elevator is to allow JISC to fund innovative projects that will be valuable to higher and further education. Once an idea has been submitted to the site, people working and studying in UK higher and further education (with an .ac.uk email) will be able to vote if they like the idea. When an idea receives the target number of votes then we will decide whether or not to fund the idea. This crowd sourcing mechanism will allow us to respond to the demands and needs of those working and studying in higher and further education. The combination of crowd sourcing and small agile projects allows ideas to be focused tightly on solving a particular problem that is experienced by many people at a range of higher and further education institutions. It also enables experimentation with new ideas and technology that appeal to a large group of people while keeping costs and risks low. This has been added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.
