Tools We Support
Here you’ll find a selection of tables detailing the tools that we support or recognise in Humanities eLearning. Primarily, we’d like to draw your attention to our core tools; these are our recommended software that we are committed to supporting in both the short and medium term.
Beyond the core tools we recognise a range of supplementary software that we do not manage or directly provide support for, where the primary owner of the tool is often another team within the University. Finally, we’d like to highlight a small collection of external tools that we don’t provide support for, but have proven themselves to be useful to staff and students but we do not support directly.
For an overview of what these tools do, take a look at this handy Padlet, where you’ll find examples and videos.
Some of the tools listed below must be accessed via specific browsers. Visit the Browser Preferences page to check which browser you should use for each tool.
