Traditional methods of creating and managing publishing work can be significantly improved through the efficiency made available by new technologies. One of them is Artificial Intelligence (AI). However, for many publishers, AI still seems abstract and unclear and how it can help them.
Luckily tools like Papyrus make the benefits of AI clear for teachers, publishers and the authors who work with them. Papyrus allows authors working with publishers in English Language Teaching (ELT) industry to correctly ascertain the language level of their writing and adjust it accordingly. For publishers - particularly educational publishers who work with large amounts of content which need to be organised, classified and created according to language level - tools like Papyrus increase efficiency and fit perfectly into a productive publishing value chain.

Once we've collected customers' requests, we handover them to our product development team, which then plans how the products will be improved in the short and long term.Read More
From Google Maps integrated into a website to credit card payments, more and more industries are using an Application Programming Interface and educational publishers are no exception.
There’s a lot of information around about APIs - how they’re integral to business success and the cornerstone of any digital business. But what exactly is an API? How is it relevant for educational publishers? And why should you care?

The digital age is changing lots of traditional industries. Neither education nor publishing are exempt. Many educational publishers have recognised this and are beginning to adapt their content into Smart Content using metadata tagging.
There are 3 things to take into account when picking your metadata management tool:
- Understanding the product
- Standards used by the system
- The accuracy and specificity of the tool

In this blog post, we'll examine what kind of solutions exist in the market that offer CEFR classification.Read More

While other materials might be incorrectly classified at a lower level leaving advanced-level students bored or not challenged enough. In this blog post, we’ll reveal how an automated, artificial-intelligence-driven, CEFR* tagger mitigates these pains.Read More
