Please ensure you are using Desktop@UCL or the UCL VPN when booking.

What’s on offer

ISD Digital Skills Development has released new dates for the second half of Term 2 to be offered online via Blackboard Collaborate and Microsoft Teams.

We are offering a wide range of courses covering R, Stata, Microsoft Tools (including Forms, OneNote and Sway) and much more. Highlights this term include:

  • Introduction to Teams & Prerequisite course for Advanced workshops;
  • Excel Essential Skills programme – Orientation session;
  • XMind mind mapping tool – workshop.

This term we are bringing back our popular Software for success and 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.

In a Nutshell sessions highlight a single task in a particular application, such as starting a project in NVivo for example.

We have also adapted our introductory series of Excel Essential Skills Workshops to a self-paced programme with some interactive sessions. Learn more on the Excel Essential Skills Workshops blog post about the new format.

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.

Joining a 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 the How to enrol on courses blog post to book.

We will send out the link to join the session the day before (or Friday 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).

Need help with your digital skills? Just drop in!

Caroline Norris29 January 2021

laptop keyboard with handDuring term time, ISD Digital Skills Development run a weekly drop in session where you can get help with your digital skills. As the name suggests there is no need to book, although you may have to wait your turn if there are other people ahead of you.

Since March last year these sessions have been run in Moodle using Blackboard Collaborate. Just connect to the Blackboard Collaborate session at the appropriate time and wait for one of our team to come and take you to a breakout room where you can get individual support.

We can help with a variety of queries on how to use a whole range of software including, but not limited to, the content of our training courses (the courses prefixed with DSD). For example, you might wish to know how to use a particular function in Excel or have a formatting issue in Word. We can also advise on the best software to use for a particular purpose.

More details about what we can and can’t help with can be found on the Digital Skills Drop In pages. Note that we can’t help if your computer or its software are not working properly, for this you will need to contact ISD IT Services.

Excel Essential Skills Workshops – new format

Jasmin E Mullings5 October 2020

Our popular series of Excel Essential Skills workshops, which are targeted towards students, took a new approach to learning by presenting you with a problem to be solved and encouraging you to use your prior experience, web searches and in-application help to find a solution to the task. Topics cover creating calculated worksheets, data management and using in-built Excel functions.

This term we have adapted the workshops to make them suitable to be completed remotely while still retaining some interactive sessions.

Anyone who wants to complete the self-paced Excel Essential Skills programme should attend an Orientation session, where the facilitator will introduce the format, guide you to the location of the course materials and point you in the direction of where to find help.

You then complete the worksheets at your own pace, however, if you get stuck on a particular step, you can attend one of our drop-ins for help.

Once you have completed the tasks for a particular worksheet, you can access the ‘worked example’ by marking the tasks as complete in Moodle. You can attend a follow-up Review session where the trainer will go over the tasks and you will have the opportunity ask any further questions.

By the end of each worksheet, you will have improved problem-solving skills, an increased knowledge of the topic, a ‘worked example’ of how you might have completed the worksheet and some resources and guidance for further learning.

To book on an Excel Essential Skills programme (self-paced) – Orientation, please follow the instructions on this blog post.
