Web Collaboration

If you wish to share ideas and resources with students or colleagues; a number of options are open to you:

Start a Collaborative Blog.
Staff may request a Blog account and act as administrator/moderator for group discussions, with your students or colleagues, granting them access rights etc.

Make your request via the Service Desk, and the Web Service team will allocate accounts and an area on the website for you to use. Ongoing support and advice is also available via the Service Desk.

Wiki

The University uses these communication channels for a variety of purposes like communicating upcoming events on Twitter, the Library’s use of YouTube for video training films on how to use Library services.
