Collaborating Online

Collaborating online refers to the ability to confidently use technology to create working relationships and to build networks, both within the University and outside your studies.

Why collaborate online?

There are a number of reasons why you might need to work collaboratively with others.  It may be a requirement within a module to use a specific tool, or you may decide to work with others in a seminar or project group where you select your own tool. 

Working collaboratively will allow you to share documents and add comments or make edits to these, or to 'meet' online if you cannot always meet face to face. 

Some tools you may need to use and which you should become familiar with include: 

  • Blackboard
  • OneDrive
  • OneNote
  • Microsoft Teams
