UniTube is the University's video streaming and lecture capture service. It has many useful educational videos already uploaded to it, including free-to-air TV programs and films and videos created by other members of staff. You can easily add your own content. Students can access content from UniTube directly, or through links that you embed in UniLearn.
UniTube is at https://unitube.hud.ac.uk
The off-air recording service is based in the Library. Details of how to request, or schedule your own recordings are on the Library's pages.
Record your own video clips, and upload them to UniTube. You can control who can view them - just within the University, or the rest of the world. Your school Learning Technology Advisor can show you how.
Many lecture rooms are fitted with a lecture capture system. Sound is recorded, visual display from the room's data projector is recorded, and some rooms have a camera as well. Visit https://ipark.hud.ac.uk/content/unitube to learn more, or ask your School's LTA..
You can make links in UniLearn to content in UniTube, allowing students easy access material appropriate for their modules. Visit Visit https://ipark.hud.ac.uk/content/unitube to learn more, or ask your School's LTA.

The Staff Hub https://myhud.hud.ac.uk/ provides a single place where University staff can access systems such as Unilearn, access University networks and software, and read emails. You will find the latest news, events, topical polls, staff development opportunities and a message board where you can sell or give away items. You can connect and share ideas with your colleagues with our Staff Discussion Board and access the University’s online community, the Social Media Hub. In short, there’s pretty much everything that you’ll need, all in one place.
The Staff Hub is the main source of central staff information, including everything from the latest staff news to useful links to information. To ensure that you don’t miss out on useful information most staff computers are automatically set up to have the Staff Hub as the default homepage when you log in.
The Online systems tab provides links to email, My Students, Summon, timetables, Brightspace, Unishare and Wisdom.
If you are on the campus wireless network or off-campus, you'll be asked for your login name and password.
To make full use of all the features on the online tab, you must complete the registration details. You will need to register only once each year. Just enter your usual University username and password - the same ones you use when you log into a campus PC.
Once you have registered, the links on the online tab will give you access to university resources, wherever you are.
For more information about the Staff Hub, there is an introduction video

In line with the increasing demand for mobile accessible services and in response to growing cyber security requirements, UoH is implementing Microsoft Intune for Mobile Device Management (MDM).
Microsoft Intune is a cloud-based enterprise mobility management service that aims to help workforces manage their mobile devices including Laptops, Tablets and Mobile phones. When devices are enrolled into the Intune platform applications can be deployed, profiles and policies can be configured to make sure devices comply with the Universities Enterprise Mobility Strategy and by applying the correct Security and Encryption configuration as guided by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).
Microsoft Intune will help provide the University with a secure device and application management suite, which will allow Staff and Students secure access to their data so they can stay productive, whilst keeping their University data protected at all times.
For further technical information please see the Intune section on Microsoft’s website
Before we can start the Project we must first clean up or current Intune environment by removing all of the un-used devices.
When a device is removed from Intune the user assigned to that device will get the following pop-up notification:
What this message means is that the device has been removed from Intune (workplace account) and that corporate information and any apps that are delivered to the device will be removed.
As there are no Apps or Policies delivered to the device from Intune the device will function as normal. This will not affect any locally installed or data stored on the device.
