Oxford Nexus is a central Oxford service used for email, calendaring, contacts and much more. Nexus is the replacement for the previous email system known as Herald, and also offers new features, such as calendars, to-do lists and access to a University-wide address list. You can access Nexus using a web browser, via a program installed on your computer and even on your mobile phone. To access all the new features we recommend that you use a program installed on your computer (aka a "client") such as Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2003 for Windows users and Entourage 2008 if you are a Mac user. However, if you already use an email client on your computer such as Mozilla Thunderbird, Outlook Express, MacMail, or Eudora you can still access your emails in the same way that you did on Herald. And remember, using a client to access Nexus on your own computer does not exclude you from also accessing Nexus using a web bowser via the Outlook Web Access (OWA) login page, for example when you want to check your email or to use your calendar when you are away from your own computer.
Oxford University student help needed for usability study
We are currently redesigning our web site and need up to 5 Oxford University student volunteers to perform some user testing experiments for us. It will take no longer than 1 hour and you will receive a £10 Amazon voucher for your time. The testing will take place on Thursday 12th December during the afternoon. If you are interested in helping please contact IT Services Webmaster in the first instance.
IT Services' Online Advent Calendar
The University Strategic Plan says we should develop Oxford's online presence. We prefer online presents. In our Open Advent calendar this year IT Services will showcase the many lovely things we give users. A new door will become open each day until 24th December.
