Your stepping stone to success at University

Technology at Maynooth

As a student in 2020, technology will be central to your success at university. To help support your transition to online learning, you are invited to attend three fun group online sessions designed to introduce you to some of the technologies available in the academic environment.   

Each session runs for about 45 minutes at 11am, 12pm and 2pm on Monday Tuesday and Wednesday at the same times, accessible on mobile and desktop through Microsoft Teams.  

You attend any session by clicking on the link to join. There is no need for you to sign-up or register in advance. You’re welcome to come along multiple times to any topic if you’d like to refresh your learning.
