Service desk available

The Centre for Teaching and Learning provides a dedicated Digital Education Service Desk to assist staff.

The service is available Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5pm and can be contacted by emailing the service at

The service provides help from experts in several areas, including digital education, educational development, and the Canvas VLE, all of whom are available to help departments, faculties and colleges with queries related to the delivery of in-person, online and hybrid teaching.

Service staff can help with:

  • adapting courses to online or hybrid provision
  • creating and setting up new courses in Canvas
  • optimising use of digital education tools
  • advising on, delivering and signposting training
  • providing general advice relating to teaching design and provision.

Please note the service can only assist with queries relating to teaching. For anything else, please contact the general IT service desk.
