Helpdesk tool “We are experimenting with a small scale wiki tool to help us with internal communication within a large Learner Support team. In an effort to cut down on e-mails and go some way towards 'centralising' and organising (mostly short term) information needed to serve students across a range of service points. The wiki is updated daily/hourly/as required with any information thought important to the team.
