University IT links

It can be dificult to find some very useful University IT links.  So, check out the list on the left - you might just find what you are looking for :)

If you have a suggestion for other links that could be listed here, or that should be added to MyWeb™, please contact the WMS Helpdesk.

"Private Bag"

Large files (over 10 MB in size) cannot be sent via email within the University or off campus. 

Instead, you can use the University’s  "Private Bag" system. Private Bag replaces the old “Dead-Letter Drop”facility.  The service is located at  It allows you to transfer large files (up to 20 GB in size) to others.   It works by emailing the recipient a link to your file, with instructions on how to download that file.  The process is straightforward and works well.

Outages page

The University has an Outage Notifications page that shows any current disruptions to University-wide IT services as well as any planned outages for maintenance etc.

Using Panopto

Panopto is available in many teaching rooms and lecture theatres.  The Panopto Recorder allows you to capture a combination of video, audio, PowerPoint and screen components from your lecture.   The video files are automatically uploaded and appear under the Videos link in your paper in MyWeb™.

Please let the WMS Helpdesk  know which papers you want to record.  We will check that the settings (activated via Moodle) are correct.  Other possibilities to consider include making a Panopto video at your desk or in the MSB.3.38D video room.

We have a brief step-by-step guide (with pictures!) on how to use Panopto in the teaching rooms.

For further information go to the Univerity's Panopto site.
