Online training sessions

Apologies, but we have been forced to postpone all online tutorials taking place today and tomorrow, 15 and 16 November. This is due to a significant issue with the platform that delivers the online tutorials. We are liaising closely with our platform provider to get the issues resolved.

Library Services offers a programme of live online training sessions to all OU students and staff.

The online training sessions are 30 minutes long and provide an online alternative to face-to-face training while still allowing you live access to a librarian. To find out more about the tool we use and to access a room to test your audio, please see the Computing Guide (OU users only).

Recordings of the live training sessions are available underneath the 'Join Room' link on the session pages.
