4. Conclusions

The University does not mandate a particular system for any specific activity. Users should choose the service which best meets their needs and is easiest to use. However, both services have been designed to help facilitate specific processes in the University, and OUCS is funded to provide user support and service development within the agreed scope of each service. WebLearn has been designed to support teaching and learning, and its focus is to meet the needs of teachers and to offer a first class environment for students. Nexus is a new service which is designed to offer a shared online environment for staff and students across the collegiate University, and the SharePoint component of MOSS focuses, in particular, on document sharing and workflow support for researches and administrators.
