Try our Escape Room...

We have created a virtual Escape Room  called 'Unlock the Library' to test your online library skills. Thank you to the Step Up to HE students who have tested the room and for their invaluable contributions.

This runs through OneNote and contains a series of password protected 'rooms'. You only get into the next room if you follow the instructions to solve the puzzle(s) in the room before.

Please note that it works best if once OneNote has opened in the browser, you open in the app.

To open in app, you have to type in the box that reads ‘Tell me what you want to do’ and type in Open in…. and the option appears. 

 

Enter the Library Escape room 1 and start your quest...

Please note that the first password you need for room 1 is START.  Note: this must be entered in uppercase to work!

Good luck - and have fun!!

Escape room 2 - the adventure continues...

Once you have completed the first Escape room, you can test your skills further in our new Escape Room. 

This again runs through OneNote with a series of password protected 'rooms'. You only get into the next room if you follow the instructions to solve the puzzle(s) in the room before.

This room also works best when opening in the desktop app. To open in app, you have to type in the box that reads ‘Tell me what you want to do’ and type in Open in…. and the option appears.
