Develop your digital skills this academic year – online offering now available
By Jasmin E Mullings, on 4 May 2020
We are also hosting our usual weekly drop-in sessions remotely via Blackboard Collaborate for those who would like individual support on a specific issue. The dates and times of the sessions, along with the direct Blackboard Collaborate link, are available in our ISD Digital Skills Development Moodle course.
Please view the current schedule of courses and workshops below. Once you’ve looked at the schedule and chosen the course(s) you want to book, follow the instructions on this blog post to book and view the course description carefully to ensure you have all the information, check for any pre-learning (if applicable) and know how to join the live session(s).
As we will use Blackboard Collaborate for many of our sessions, please watch the 10-minute Participant video guide which explains how to use and what to expect from the BB Collaborate platform.
Please ensure you allow yourself enough time to complete any pre-learning (see our Moodle course) as it may take a few hours for some courses. Please also download the course materials via our Moodle course in advance of the live session. Not all the courses will have pre-learning and course materials available yet, however, we will endeavour to make them available by Monday 11th May. If materials will be made available later for any particular course, a date will be given for when they are available.
We will send out the link to join the session the day before (or morning before if it’s a Monday course) but you can also join directly from MyLearning (see blog post for instructions on how to do this).
Also note that we have added an extra 15 minutes to the start time of our courses to allow participants to test out their audio/connection. The actual course will start promptly on the hour (15 minutes after the advertised time).
