    Studying from home

    06/04/2020
    Resources, guides and information for successful online learning

    There are so many resources at your finger tips to ensure you've got everything you need to successfully study from home. This is not an all encompassing list but gives you a taster and will be regularly updated as and when new resources are made available.

    Issues accessing laptops, computers or the internet

    • If you do not have access to a computer/ laptop, simply raise a ticket or chat online with the UniHelp team who will be able to advise on your options including collecting a laptop from campus.
    • If you don’t have internet access at home/at your accommodation, please contact welfare@mdx.ac.uk and the team will do their best to help you.

    For further assistance please follow the steps on our guidance page for maximising broadband connections here.

    • To make sure that you are comfortable while studying from home, we recommend that you read this good practice guide for using your laptop.

    Borrowed laptops due back 13 July

    From the start of term in September, the University will make more laptops available for you to borrow. As we’ve done since the beginning of the pandemic, you will be able to borrow laptops directly from the IT team, without using the self-service cabinets (reducing the risk to COVID-19 exposure) or you can request for one to be sent to your home address. We have also extended the initial loan period, which means you will not have to return the laptop until January 2021.

    To borrow a laptop, simply raise a ticket with UniHelp

    Please remember that you will not be able to borrow a laptop from the self-service cabinets as they are not in service.

    .

    Got a question about any of the platforms or are experiencing an issue?

    Simply raise a ticket with the UniHelp team and they’ll ensure the correct team looks into it.
