I found it easier to navigate through KEATs, easier to create good notes for revision using different tools and software’s and I learnt more to avoid plagiarism and organise my references well.– Student participant from 2021
I increased my confidence in being able to manage the many platforms that I need to be able to use all at once from submissions to finding information and being mindful of my online footprint and practice.– Student participant from 2021

What is the Essential Digital Skills Programme?

The programme teaches students the essential digital skills needed to support their academic, professional, and personal development. The focus will be on five main themes which are:

  • Your online learning platform (KEATS).
  • Digital tools to equip you for success.
  • Being a good digital citizen.
  • Wellbeing in the digital world.
  • Resources for your studies.

Students will work through the online content, and complete short assessments (such as quizzes) to measure and reinforce learning.
