Welcome to Plymouth Marjon University and to the Digital Skills Help area.

This area is for Marjon students who are taught off campus and contains help and guidance with the technologies that you may be asked to use.   The videos provide you with an  overview of the technologies used by Marjon students and show you where to find help and support.   There is also guidance beneath the videos that provides you with quick access to information and links to help you get started.

Logging in

Your network account gives you access to:

  • Your E-mail account
  • Learning Space
  • Library electronic resources
  • Virtual Private Network (VPN)

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 Digital Skills Training  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.
