The staff hub was created to provide TUS staff with useful information to help you as you work within our community. Information about the systems we use within the Institute, such as Office 365, Moodle, Zoom and others is available here, along with some useful guides to using the systems. If you're teaching, you can access your module descriptors on Module Manager and find out how to enter results in Gradebook. These are available in the Downloads section. In the Useful Links section, there are links to other areas within the Institute, such as Human Resources, where you will find information and resources relating to the work environment.
Finally, our Data Protection Officer, Betty Brennan, has developed a comprehensive guide to our GDPR responsabilities. Take some time to read the information provided in the GDPR section, so that you can be sure you are GDPR compliant.

Moodle: our virtual learning environment
TUS has adopted Moodle as its virtual learning environment to enhance the educational experience for our students.

Zoom: our online teaching/meeting platform
To deliver our online, synchronous classes we use the popular online meeting platform, Zoom, which allows us to provide engaging sessions using its many features. Lecturers usually provide the link to their online classes via their Moodle page or Email. It is worth noting that TUS students also have their own licensed Zoom account, so they can organise meetings for group projects, etc. You should access Zoom through your Office 365 account.
