Introduction to your iPad

The iPad is enhanced by Teesside University’s collection of software apps available on each iPad.

These are used inside and outside the classroom to support you in preparing for professional life.


Microsoft Office 365 is at the heart of the toolkit – particularly Microsoft Teams which is a collaborative working space that allows you to develop skills that will benefit your career – teamwork, project management, digital literacy.

Some of the apps, such as Socrative and Padlet, are specifically designed to help you actively engage in the learning experience, allowing you to provide feedback and ask questions in an online environment.

You also have access to the MyTU, the Teesside University student portal which provides vital information on your studies – email, calendar, campus map, PC finder, library loans, print credit – and our virtual learning environment, Blackboard for your course materials. All of the apps can also be used on other devices both on and off campus
