Assistive Technology

Assistive technology (AT) is any item, piece of equipment, software program, or product system that is used to increase, maintain, or improve the functional abilities of a person. The Assistive Technology service promotes and trains on the assistive software available on AppsAnywhere.  

Our sessions provide a variety of tools to support academic skills including notetaking, lecture recording, time management/organisation, essay structuring, research skills and revision. 

Introduction

What software do we support?

We currently support the following software:

Mindview is a professional mind mapping software that allows you to visually organise and present ideas. It can integrate with MS Office software to allow you to collaborate and manage projects.

Office 365 (PDF, 2.21MB) has some great new learning tools to support your reading, writing and research. You can use these tools to: read back your work, change the way your screen looks, and to help you find the right words.

Glean is a web-based app that allows you to record your teaching sessions (online or in-person) and take notes in real-time. All your notes and recordings are saved to the cloud and there are no storage limits.

Audio Notetaker is designed to help you capture audio, text and slides in a single workspace.
