Workshops and online learning materials including:-
Finding Research for Assignments
(introductory information including a section on evaluating sources)
Discovery demo-searching on a topic
(this demo uses an essay topic as an example)
Safari (Macs, including iPhones/iPads)
Safari blocks "cross site tracking" by default, but this feature is used to give you access to the videos hosted on Microsoft Stream, so you will see a "it looks like a there's a problem" message.
On the error message there is a link to "open in new window", which should open the video. (If you wish to permit cross site tracking you can change this in your Safari settings.)
All browsers (including Safari, Chrome, Edge, etc.)
These videos are only visible to Heriot-Watt staff and students. If you are getting an error saying that the video can't be found, or any other errors, check whether you are logged into your Heriot-Watt account (and not an account for another university/your employer) by going to https://portal.office.com/ .
