Microsoft Surface Hub

The Microsoft Surface Hub is a fully touch sensitive computer screen used by the University of Bristol’s medical school for collaboration, teaching and learning. They are all equipped with a standard suite of software including Microsoft Office365 applications (Word, PowerPoint etc) and Microsoft Teams, which is used for video conferencing calls to other Hubs and remote colleagues or guest presenters. The Microsoft Edge browser can be used to access web-based tools and resources on the web (for example Blackboard Collaborate).

This page will continue to be developed by the Faculty of Health Sciences to provide useful resources for the Microsoft Surface Hub with FAQs, Hub teaching case studies and downloadable user and teaching guides.
