Induction: Quick Start Guide

Welcome to Plymouth Marjon University and to the Tel Help area.

This area provides help and guidance on all of the technology you will use during your time at the university. This first guide aims to give you some quick information and links to help you get started.

If your main place of study is not on the main Marjon campus you may not be eligible to access all campus resources and there may be additional information that the tutors at your base will provide you with in relation to, for example, printing, handing in work or accessing wifi.

See the recording below for a re-cap of the content covered in the IT and Technology Enhanced Learning Induction sessions.

See the information below for links to our support materials.

Logging in

Your network account gives you access to:

  • The computers on Marjon campus
  • Your E-mail account
  • Learning Space
  • Library electronic resources
  • Print credits – monitor and top up
  • Virtual Private Network (VPN)
  • Marjon mobile
  • Wifi

When you arrive your username will be your 8 digit student number (found at the bottom of your library card). Your password will initially be set to the following: Marjon-DDMMYYYY (replace DDMMYYYY with your date of birth).

New passwords must be 14 characters in length and include upper/lower-case letters, numbers and symbols.

Marjon network passwords do not expire. However, if you forget your password, you will be unable to login to LS or access other services. It is essential that you setup your password reset profile.  For guidance on how to use the Password Reset Manager, look in the Network Account Information section of the ITTS Frequently asked questions page.

Once you’ve created a profile you can then reset your password online, at any time.   Once you’ve logged in to LearningSpace you can access a range of resources.


You can access LearningSpace (LS), the University’s online Virtual Learning Environment from any computer with Internet access.

Marjon CheckIn is an Attendance Registering system that records your attendance and activity on Marjon campus in timetabled sessions.

REPLAY (Panopto) Recording Lights

All timetabled lectures are captured by REPLAY and made available to you via the REPLAY block on your LearningSpace module page.

REPLAY recording lights have recently been installed in teaching rooms across Marjon campus to help make it clearer to you when a session is being recorded by the automatic system. The light will appear red when a session is being recorded and white when a recording is paused or no recording has been scheduled.

There is also a Panopto app that we recommend you download. This  enables you to view all lecture recordings of modules that you are enrolled on
