Learning Tech Help and Support

December 23, 2022, by Helen Whitehead

Help available from Learning Technology: Advent Calendar #23

Here are some sources of help to staff (and some for students)

  • The Moodle Help website (on Workspace) is comprehensive and searchable
  • Try one of our training courses: Training Schedule
  • There are also a number of Faculty resources including ArtsSocial SciencesEngineeringFMHSScience
  • Get support from a live person: there are regular live drop-ins in A09 Coates (for Engineering) and in E06 Monica Partridge Building (for other Faculties) as well as the new MHS Hub.
  • Raise a call with Pav, our cheerful HelpDesk lead. We pride ourselves on responding the same day (or next day at latest).
  • Pop into our Teams drop-in. Drop us a message on Teams Chat and we’ll call you if you prefer. FMHS, Social Sciences, Arts and Science 9 – 4.30 daily Click here to join the Drop-in Team site  and  Engineering 1-3 pm daily
  • And all Learning Technology Consultants and Officers are happy to help anyone who gets in touch.

Check System Status in case your issue is a wider/known issue – for example:

Always keep an eye on the banner on Moodle: this will give information on for example, any maintenance planned (this is generally minimal, and carefully planned with consultation to try to avoid crucial times in any of our campuses!).
