We have been made aware by IT Services that there are currently access issues for staff and partners trying to access LearnUCS via, student accounts are currently unaffected.

New 'clickers' booking system

We have today launched our new staff booking system for the audience response system (clickers).

This new system is much more user-friendly for those booking and for our Learning Services staff managing the bookings.

The short URL ( ) used previously auto forwards to the new site, instructions are on the page on how to book.  It is simply a matter of choosing the day, then selecting the time slots you require, then your contact details.

Clickers are to be collecting from the Learning Services helpdesk in the Library Building.  We are currently down to one large set as one of the receivers has failed to be returned from a previous booking.

If you require help and support from the Digital Learning Team with the use of clickers, or other technologies please email
