    Develop your digital skills this academic year – new dates released

    By Caroline Norris, on 27 September 2018

    ISD Digital Skills Development has released new dates for the second half of term.  New this November we have a course in Markdown, a lightweight markup language that allows the creation of formatted documents using only plain text.

    Following our successful introduction of Excel Essential Skills workshops last year, we have now added Word workshops for students. Find out how to Make light work of writing up  in our Sway presentation.  (Want to make your own Sway?  Come along to a mini demo session with Digital Skills Development at IOE.)
