What we do
Academic IT Services is part of the IT Services Department at the University of Oxford. We work across the collegiate University to inspire and enable staff and students in the use of technology to strengthen Oxford’s role as a world leader in teaching, learning, research and outreach. Our services include:
- providing key educational and research infrastructure, such as the WebLearn VLE and the Advanced Research Computing facility;
- consultation and advice to individuals and departments on a range of subjects;
- classroom and online training in 21st-century digital skills;
- facilitating the recording and publishing of lectures, seminars and other University events.
Through a partnership approach to researching and evaluating technology-enhanced academic practice we aim to ensure that the best digital experience for our staff and students is the typical experience.

- follow @acitoxford on Twitter to be informed about each post as it is published; and/or
- subscribe to our mailing list in order to receive a fortnightly email during full term containing links to the most recent posts.
