  • Helpdesk tool
    • “ We are experimenting with a small scale wiki tool to help us with internal communication within a large Learner Support team. In an effort to cut down on e-mails and go some way towards 'centralising' and organising (mostly short term) information needed to serve students across a range of service points. The wiki is updated daily/hourly/as required with any information thought important to the team. We would be very interested to see if anyone is doing something similar and to hear what kind of results you are having” Paula Fitzpatrick Learner Support Team University of Northumbria
