New academic year, new goals?

The new academic year is upon us and we would like to hear from you about what support members of staff would like us to provide going forward.

We are currently working on a resource inventory for this site and are looking at putting on some introductory workshops for academics looking to get to grips with using technology for blogging and social media. These could be as involved or as informal as you would like them to be.

If you would like to send us suggestions for topics or would like use to come along informally to meet with you and your working/research group, please contact us through the form on this website and we will get back to you to arrange a date.

Moving complete


Hello everyone,
The office move is now complete and the Online Media Development Team along with the college MIRO are now located in BH020 – that is on the ground floor of Bridge House in the office closest to the main entrance doors.



Hello everyone,
This is just a quick note to let everyone know that as part of the current building works at the university, the Online Media Development Team will be moving to the ground floor of Bridge House as of 4th September.
We will be in the process of packing before that and should hopefully be back to operational readiness by 11th of September.
Thank you for your patience.

Video Guides



In addition to our Help Guides page, we have also created a few video guides to help staff get started with blogs and social media.

These short guides provide a visual walk-through of setting-up a new blog on the university blog network, enabling some advanced features for blogs, as well as using tools such as Tweetdeck, IFTTT, and Trello to help organise your social media and working processes.
