Toolkit (formerly Learners' Toolkit) is a multi-award winning, digital information resource for students and staff. From managing your user credentials to planning a better presentation, you’ll find the support you need to get on in your studies or role at the University of Aberdeen.

Our aim is to design, develop and deliver content that is relevant to you, whatever level of support you need and whatever your device platform.

So whether you are a student or member of staff, let us know what we can do to better support you:



How do I access the Toolkit?

Whatever device you’re using, just go to

What kind of content will I find?

You will find a mix of original and curated content presented through a range of digital media.

It’s early days for Toolkit but we’re developing new content all the time. Our aim is to deliver a comprehensive collection of materials and tools to support you in your everyday tasks.

I have an idea for Toolkit. How do I let you know?

If you have an idea for new content, or you want to give us feedback, then we want to hear from you.

Use the Toolkit’s feedback feature, email us at, or fill in our Digital Content Request Form.

I represent a University service/department. Can we deliver our materials through the Toolkit?

Yes! You’re welcome to get in touch.

If you’d like to meet with us to find out how Toolkit might work for you, email us at

Or, if you already have a clear idea of what you want, fill out our online Content Request Form.

What do the different coloured tools mean?

We have grouped Toolkit content into four areas, each represented by a different colour theme: blue for Productivity Tools, pink for Digital Skills, green for University Services and Schools, and gold for University Systems and Software.

How was the Toolkit built?

Our in-house Web Team developed the Toolkit architecture.

Great! How can I find out more?
