Did you know that IT Services offers a Web Design Consultancy service? The WDC helps to ensure that Oxford-affiliated websites are accessible and adhere to the University's web accessibility standards. The WDC provides free advice on web design best practice and plenty of online resources including a getting started guide, an introduction to web accessibility, and a range of HTML/CSS templates. The WDC can also undertake small-scale web design projects on a charged basis and can work with you whether your website is hosted locally, using the free basic web hosting provided by IT Services or the comprehensive web hosting provided by NSMS.

Pilot of Appointments for Help Desk Support 9am to 1pm
The Help Desk will book appointments for people whose issues are easier to solve face-to-face or require personal identification. If the pilot is a success we aim to replace the drop-in service with appointments to gain these advantages:
  • Problems which do not require a personal visit can be identified and resolved quickly over the phone or via email
  • Knowing more about an issue before the user arrives, we can schedule the staff member with the best skill set match
  • If the staff member is ill, we can reschedule appointments
  • The issue can be researched in advance, reducing the amount of time needed for the appointment
Integrated Communications Project

ICP will diversify and enhance communication options across the collegiate University, allowing for online presence notification, instant messaging, voice and video conferencing, collaboration and screen sharing services. You can choose to make and receive calls on University telephones, desktop and laptop computers, tablets and smartphones, telling the system where you are to transfer calls to your chosen device.
