Making the most of Teams

Teams and Nexus365 have become part of our daily lives. We may work in several locations – in the office, home, lab, library, or a shared workspace. So, we need to develop skills to manage our documents and effectively collaborate with our colleagues.  

You can learn to make smarter use of Teams and Nexus365 by attending one of the IT Learning Centre's short courses, or at your own pace using self-learn resources. Further information about what's coming soon is available below.
