We hope you enjoyed the summer and are ready for the new school year to begin! As you gear up, we wanted to let you know what’s been going on at Torsh – TALENT system updates, blog posts, and featured articles!


Feature Updates

New and Improved Exemplar Library: Talent’s Exemplar Library now allows you to post video and non-video resources. This way Admins and Coaches can post lesson plans, curriculum materials, and other useful non-video resources to the Exemplar library!

We’ve also improved the way you post to the Exemplar library by adding bulk posting and allowing the copying over of comments, rubric tags, supporting documents and any other items you may have added to your video/file. You’ll also notice Exemplar collections and sub-collections which allow you to more easily organize these files. With the start of the new school year, all of you TALENT admins and coaches can start curating your Exemplar resources today!

The Exemplar library is available to all TALENT systems level Premium or above. Don’t see it? Or interested in learning more? Reach out to your account manager or!

Also, don’t forget our other features that came out this past year including Coaching Corner, Insights, and Forums! Let us know if you have any questions about how you can start implementing these features at your organization today!

Courtney’s Quote of the Day

If you are out there, and you are reading this, your city needs you. I need you. And my fellow tech entrepreneurs need you. Stay here, or come back here, and put your skills to work for New Orleans.”
