All open access PCs have a range of general learning support applications installed. These include:

My Study Bar

My Study Bar tools are designed to support the complete study cycle from research, planning and structuring, to getting across a written or spoken message. The toolbar has 6 sections with drop down menus for each, enabling flexible and independent learning.


Zotero is, at the most basic level, a reference manager. It is designed to store, manage, and cite bibliographic references, such as books and articles. In Zotero, each of these references constitutes an item.

X Mind

XMind is a brainstorming and mind mapping software tool developed to assist users in capturing ideas, organising various charts, and sharing the results with collaboration.
