The TEL team is staff-facing but we do have some resources, linked below, to support students to use some of the University's main tools.

Course teams provide support to students for the majority of tools and technologies you will need to use during your studies.  Your course team should be your first point of contact for any general query about your studies.  The IT HelpdeskSkills CentreLibrary and Student Services also provide direct support to students.

When using the various tools and technologies for your studies, we would remind you that you are expected to follow basic guidance around online etiquette and also adhere to the University's IT Acceptable Use Policy.

Specific guidance for using the different tools is detailed under the links below, but some general suggestions and advice, particularly for accessing your LOIL and IPT sessions, is also available.  We recommend you look through this carefully as it provides advice on preparing yourself for study and being prepared for those times when the technology does not behave as expected.
