Short Courses: Developing your Digital Capabilities

What is the Developing your Digital Capabilities course?

The Academic Support Team have developed a free course in Moodle to help you develop your digital capabilities.

The aim of the course is to introduce you to the key digital tools for university learning and allows you to reflect on the ways in which you can develop the essential digital skills and capabilities needed for university study and beyond. The areas of digital capability covered by the course are:

  • ICT proficiency
  • Digital learning
  • Digital communication and collaboration
  • Information, data and media literacies
  • Digital identity management and digital wellbeing
  • Digital creation, innovation and problem solving

Completion of the course earns you a Moodle badge which you can use to apply for Greenwich Employability Passport points! 

This short video tells you more about the course.

What are digital capabilities?

JISC describes digital capabilities as the skills and attitudes which equip someone to live, learn and work in a digital society.

Developing digital capabilities and the confidence to adapt to emerging technologies will help you navigate through digital learning at university. 

Successful navigation through professional life also requires strong digital capabilities and confidence. With many businesses taking the decisions to adopt online, or hybrid working practices, employers are increasingly looking at the digital capabilities applicants and employees have.
