Digital Skills Tutorials

Digital Partner can support you with developing your digital skills; or if you are new to DMU, give you a quick introduction to the DMU systems you will be accessing.

Book a slot for a 30-minute online tutorial for MS365 Office and Computer Skills support. We will be using MS Teams to deliver the tutorial. If you are using MS Teams for the first time, please log in to your MS365 on Office.com and click on the Teams app for your online tutorials.

What if I can’t find a slot?

You will receive an email confirming the cancellation. Please note you will be asked to confirm your tutorial/chat is not taking place while you are in exam conditions.
