Digital Passport

Digital Passport Digital Badge

The Digital Passport focuses on how technology can make your learning journey easier. Each session will focus on a different web tool or technology, (including your phone!) within a list of recommended tools that can be used in such a way to support your workload. 

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.
