|TeamUp for Staff and Students|
TeamUp is a collaboration and communication tool that allows you to chat, exchange messages, links and files with members in your teams. Public channels, private groups, and 1-1 private messages can be used to keep conversations relevant. Messages, chats and threaded discussions can coexist anytime in TeamUp and all replies to messages are threaded so that communication can easily be followed. For large teams, you can set up smaller private groups. Communication can be anytime and anywhere. TeamUp can be accessed via the web, and desktop and mobile apps exist for most platforms.

|Digital Assessments with ExamSoft|
You can now conduct your continuous assessments, small and high-stakes examinations online using a service provided by CIT called ExamSoft.
ExamSoft enables NUS staff to conduct DIY (do-it-yourself) proctored digital assessments on students' own notebooks inside an open or closed-book secure environment. The students' familiarity with their own devices allows them to concentrate on the assessment rather than the mode of assessment.
ExamSoft manages all aspects of the assessment (delivery, attempt and submission of answer scripts) ensuring security and integrity are maintained throughout the duration of the assessment. At the highest security level, this includes blocking access to external programs, local files and internet during the duration of the digital assessments. NUS staff can choose to receive detailed student performance analytics once the assessment is completed.
