Technical Training in the Time of COVID-19
With the campus in lockdown, we have moved some of our courses online but how does this work in practice? Is it possible to have the same level of interaction as you do in a classroom? Douglas Lowe tells of his experience.
Humanities Researcher Needing a Research Boost?
Are you a Humanities researcher? Would you like to be able to repeat a simple computing task several times but don’t want to use your own machine to do this? By using the UoM computational shared facilities (CSF) you can offload your jobs to the high performance computing (HPC) facility. This will allow you to save space and resources on your own machine to work on something else.
