How does the free trial work?
When you enter your email to get access to a free trial of Allele, you will be sent a join link from a member of our team.
Upon setting a password for your account, you will be added to a student roster and gain access to a variety of demonstration cases within Allele. By going through the learning cases, you will be experiencing the system from the perspective of a student.
To get deeper access to the authoring, and live teaching toolkits, please reserve some time with our team that is convenient for you and we can show you around.
What should I do if I have questions during my trial?
If you have questions, or would like clarification during your trial experience, please reach out and a member of our team will promptly reach out.
Does Allele integrate with my LMS?
Yes. Allele integrates with most of the commonly used LMSs on the market such as Canvas, Moodle, D2L and Blackboard. Currently, automatic grade push-back, automatic account creation and authorization via single sign-on are available.
What about accessibility?
Accessibility is a core element of Allele’s system design. Students and educators are all unique, sometimes with unique needs. As a company, Allele is committed to a continued pursuit of accessibility in all applicable aspects of the system.
Please refer to our Accessibility Overview on our Community site to learn more.
Is Allele only for medical schools?
No, Allele is not just for medical schools. While the origin of Allele is deeply rooted in veterinary and human medicine, the system was designed with the idea of supporting active learning pedagogy in its various forms. In fact, we work with many University programs that fall outside of the medical space.
Can I share my content with my colleagues?
Yes. Sharing is, and will continue to be, a core facet of Allele’s overall design.
As long as your colleagues are also author (ATA) license holders, you can actively collaborate on, and easily share content. Further, sharing content outside of your place of employment is also an option as long as your institution allows.
Allele is in constant pursuit of continuing the push to make open educational resources (OER) more readily available to educators.
If you are interested in releasing any of your content as OER, please reach out to us.
