Do you have the skills?
By Samantha Ahern, on 11 September 2019
Here in Digital Education we know that UCL’s student body is a diverse group with an equally diverse educational background. We also know that digital skills are an essential tool for everyday life and will support your studies.
We are therefore pleased to announce the launch of our new Moodle course Digital Skills Awareness@UCL.
This awareness course outlines the key digital skills you will need for your studies. It will not give you the digital skills – it is for avoiding surprises that make you say “no one told me I needed to know that!”. It offers tips and advice from a variety of sources, including other first year students and university support staff, as well as helpful links and videos from around the internet.
But this is only part of the picture.
In our Moodle course Digital Learning@UCL, you will learn about the digital tools and services that you will encounter during your studies. This will include everyday services such as Moodle and Lecturecast, our lecturing capturing service, as well as the student blogging service UCL Reflect. The course also provides information about study support services and how to get started with IT services here at UCL.
