Glean is the antidote to information overload for improved learning, productivity, and student success. Our inclusive learning technology empowers students of all abilities to take meaningful audio notes with a proven note taking process. Our technology doesn’t take notes for you, instead it scaffolds how you learn from information so you build effective note taking skills.
Designed for colleges and universities, Glean for Education facilitates learning across campus with a suite of note taking tools that build 21st century skills and streamline student support. The Glean Team’s note taking specialists work with educators and students alike to unleash learning potential.
Your students leave 65% of information behind in class. We rely on oral instruction to teach, but it’s difficult for students to capture spoken information effectively. Imagine their learning potential if they had access to everything?
It’s time to modernize learning with smart note taking.

Glean is a web-based software so no physical product is shipped to the customer. To purchase, select the type of license you would like (1 year, 3 year, or 4 year), click on “Add to Cart” and complete the purchase.
Your order will be received by the Secrest team, who will send an invitation to the end user’s email address that has been provided. If the purchaser is not the end user, please make sure to provide the end user contact information in the “Order Notes” section during check out. It may take 2-3 business days for the invitation to be sent.
Once the invitation is sent to the end user, the time will start running on that license – make sure that the person using it is ready to have it set up to maximize the amount of time they have to use it.
PLEASE NOTE: All web-based software products are non-refundable once the invitation has been sent to the end-user. It is the buyer’s responsibility to check the system requirements of any product prior to purchase.
Once you purchase a software product and Secrest Resources or the Publisher sends you the activation invitation, you are responsible for confirming your ability to access the software. The buyer bears all risk of loss after downloading the application or receiving the license key, including any loss due to a computer or hard drive malfunction. If you are unable to complete a download or access an application, please contact Secrest Resources customer service for assistance.
