Ucompass Launches Boost at Educause
Our latest Octane tool, Boost, was recently launched at the Educause conference in Philadelphia, PA. Boost provides content creators and publishers with an easy and quick way to add new functionality to their content. It matches keywords and patterns in content to trigger the delivery of a glossary term, a related resource, a support image, or even a link to a video or podcast. Publishers can build their own dictionaries and upload them into Boost, or configure their own dictionary server that provides them access to more advanced word and pattern matching.
