Latest Digest from North TEL Support – 29 October 2019

1.0 News and Information

 Changes to accessing the North Regional Server

Over the next few months we will be changing the way in which people will access the North Regional Server. Rather than providing a single sign on for a trust, staff will be provided their own individual log ins. It is hoped that this change will improve security and the service we offer.  At this stage there is nothing you need to do as more information will follow about the timetable for changes.

Source Files on the North Regional Server

To reduce the need to continuously purchase more space on the North Regional Server we are asking Trusts to take a look at the content on their partition to ensure that it is still required.  If you are storing course source files on the server, the North TEL support team are able to ‘look after them’ on our Storage Vault.  The advantage of this is that you will be reducing the costs associated with running the Regional server and storing the files in a safe central location where files can be retrieved on request.  If you are interested in more information about this please contact the North TEL Support team,

Configuration Changes to HEE e-LfH content server

HEE e-Learning for Healthcare are making changes to their server configuration. If organisations filter Internet traffic and allow communication with the HEE e-LfH server based on the IP address,, then they will need to update these filters to allow communication based on the domain, For more information see the attached ESR User notice, UN2806 – National Content Server Changes October 2019.

Request for Articulate help

Leeds Teaching Hospitals need some support with editing an e-learning package that uses the Articulate software. This is not the usual software used in the Trust and as such they are struggling to find someone with the skills to edit and update the package. If you have anyone in your organisation that might be able to support them for 1-2 days max over the next 2 – 3 weeks (they are willing to pay for this appropriately) please contact Katie Robinson,


The NorthTEL Support team manage two shared licences for Sparkol VideoScribe for use by Trusts across the North. If you are unsure what VideoScribe can do take a look at our short video, or visit the VideoScribe site  If you would like to use VideoScribe or need more information please contact the NorthTEL Support Team,
