Help with Student IT Inductions

In order to help you deliver your IT Inductions to students we have prepared a generic Powerpoint Induction file full of slides for you to use.

We hope this resource will be useful for you, you can choose to use all the slides, some or even add your own. If you think we’ve missed anything significant please get back to us so that we can update the presentation.

The objectives of the generic induction are so that upon completion students will:

  • Have been introduced to UniLife and personalised their channel settings
  • Know where to go to get a round up of all IT-related issues
  • Know where to go for IT support and to update their account’s password
  • Know how to access their email, wifi and the internet
  • Know where to find support on setting up their own device
  • Know where to go to access computer labs and printing facilities
  • Know how to access their associated Google drive/docs account
  • Know how to access Blackboard
  • Find out about some of Blackboard’s common features
  • Explore one of their modules and access course materials
  • Practise communicating with fellow students and staff
  • Practise uploading assessment work via Turnitin
