Published by Phoebe | Blog | 06 October, 2020

As you know, we are your technology trailblazers. What you may not know is that, behind the scenes, we have been working on something rather exciting to help you and your team get even more from your IT.

Our helpdesk and technicians are always here to speedily help you resolve IT issues and plan effectively for the future. But we wanted to go one step further and empower you to work even faster and more efficiently.

So we have developed a highly accessible e-learning platform to teach you simple lifehacks and techniques to power through your day. Some will help you avoid common pitfalls., others will introduce new functionality which you did not know existed in your software, making your life easier.

It is called Univertual and it covers topics ranging from IT security to Microsoft 365, it’s a one-stop-shop for increasing productivity within your workplace.

What’s included in Univertual?

It is designed as a free resource to complement other IT support services. Delivering key information in bite-sized chunks, you and your team can dip into it as you wish to get the right skills when you need them.

Among the courses included are:

  • Introduction to IT security
  • Introduction to IT awareness
  • Introduction to Microsoft SharePoint
  • Introduction to Microsoft OneDrive

Whilst our mini videos cover how to guides in programs such as:

  • Teams
  • Outlook
  • OneDrive
  • SharePoint

We will of course be expanding this content over time.

Earn badges, get recognition as you learn

We recognise how effective gamification can be in encouraging positive behaviours like learning. For example, the step counting programs which ship with wearable tech like smart watches make it a fun challenge to achieve some basic daily exercise.

Therefore we have integrated e-badges and certificates into the platform to drive engagement and help everyone get better with their computers as well as having a little fun along the way.
