You will be introduced to solid file management principles, touch typing and general assignment related skills.  Whether you are using Office 365 or Google workplace, formatting an assignment through Microsoft Word, or recording a PowerPoint presentation – having the digital competencies to use these tools will ease the assignment process. 

This programme covers topics such as digital file management, google calendar, the main components of Office 365, netiquette, and so on. By taking part in this course, you will increase your skills in digital literacy, which will help you manage your academic work.
