Microsoft Teams

Teams is a unified communications platform from Microsoft that combines persistent workplace chat, video meetings, file storage, and application integration.

You can use Microsoft Teams either from the Teams App (available on Windows, macOS, iOS and Android) or by using the Teams web version. You will get the best user experience by using the Teams Desktop App this is installed on all university computers.

Do not try to use Microsoft Teams via the Remote App as it will not connect to your microphone or webcam


Panopto allows staff and students to create, upload and share video recordings. It allows you to record webcam, audio, PowerPoint presentations and anything on the computer screen. The Panopto Recorder is available for Windows 10, MacOS, iOS and Android

Office 365

Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, OneNote and OneDrive are all available for you to download across all of your devices


Accessing H:Drive and other University apps from home

You can use the Micorsoft RemoteApp to access your H:Drive documents, a selection of apps and remote into an open access PC

Do not try to use Microsoft Teams via the Remote App. It should be downloaded into your PC or Mac (see guidance above)
