New Digital Skills courses for 2020
By Jasmin E Mullings, on 9 December 2019
IMPORTANT: Please note that the UCL booking system closed on 15th January.
When the new training booking system (MyLearning) goes live in mid-February, you will be able to book onto sessions scheduled from 2nd March onwards. If you want to be informed about the opening of the new system, enrol on our Moodle course.
A full list of course dates for this term can be found at the end of this blog post.
ISD Digital Skills Development has released new dates for the first half of Term 2. As usual, we are offering a wide range of courses covering Excel, Photoshop, R, Stata, and more…
This term we have our Software for success sessions again and three new In a Nutshell sessions.
Software for Success sessions are aimed at those starting a new research project, thesis or dissertation and unsure what tools to use for writing up, citation, data analysis etc. These short, lunchtime sessions will help you answer these questions and determine the best way to get up and running. Book a place on a ‘Software for success’ presentation.
In a Nutshell sessions highlight a single task in a particular application, such as loading survey data into NVivo for example. Book a place on an ‘In a Nutshell’ presentation.
We have added new sessions for our highly popular Creating accessible documents course. Making documents accessible is important for everyone, whether or not they have a disability or impairment. In this session you will learn how to make your PowerPoint, Word, Excel and PDF files more accessible. To find out more about creating accessible content, please visit our dedicated web pages.
See below for our current schedule of courses and workshops.

This term we have only been able to schedule Intermediate Statistics with Excel for staff and because of the rollout of a new learning management system, bookings closed on 15th January. We have scheduled another session – open to students and staff for 3rd March and you will be able to book a place very soon.

Are these courses available for recent graduates?
Are any beginner or intermediate “Statistics with Excel 2016” courses for students planned?
