Oxford has embraced podcasting technology as a way to deliver course materials and lectures outside a conventional classroom environment. For those interested in creating podcasts the how to podcast at Oxford guide gives an overview of how to go about creating your own podcasts and how to use the University RSS system, OXITEMS, to publish your podcasts to the Internet. There are two ways to access the podcasts being provided by the University of Oxford: iTunes users can make use of the University's own site in iTunes U or alternatively our podcasts can also be seen using a web browser.

Temporary change of opening hours for the Drop-in Help Desk at Banbury Road
From Monday, March 10th, up to and including Friday, March 21st, the IT Services Banbury Road Help Desk will open from 11:00 am instead of the usual 08:30 am. This is because we are particularly short staffed during those two weeks. We will still be taking queries by phone and email from 8:30 am as usual. Data Centre Reception and the Course Registration area are unaffected and will operate their normal hours.
