The Digital Skills Team are happy to announce the launch of the Digital Skills Library for staff. The Digital Skills Library is an online collection of specifically selected AU and external resources to help all staff develop their digital skills. This includes ways to support your digital identity and wellbeing, guidance surrounding learning and development such as CMS instructions, advice to improve your digital communication and much more.
The Digital Skills Library is available to all staff to develop their digital skills. However, in addition to this, we also have specific resources to help with teaching including Blackboard advice, LibGuides and resources to support online teaching.
We wrote a blogpost earlier this week introducing you to our new Digital Skills Library. The Digital Skills Library contains six collections of AU and external resources to support students at Aberystwyth University in developing a range of new and existing digital skills.
We have been launching these collections on our IS social media channels throughout this week, but you can also take a look at the images below to find out the range of digital skills you could learn in each of the six collections.
Please note that the Digital Skills Library for staff will be launched in June 2023. If you have any questions or problems accessing the Digital Skills Library, please contact the Digital Skills Team (email@example.com).
We have been working on bringing together a collection of AU and external resources for all students at Aberystwyth University to help develop a range of new and existing digital skills. These resources include teaching you about your digital footprint; and helping to improve your digital identity and wellbeing through providing resources to help with exam stress and information on ‘netiquette’ (online etiquette).
In addition to this, our Digital Skills Library contains resources to help with your digital learning and development. We have resources available on using specific software, for example how to code using Python, as well as using graphic-design and image-editing software such as Adobe Photoshop and Canva.
We have also kept in mind that there may be some digital skills that you would like to enhance and so we have made sure to include resources to help you learn new tips and tricks in familiar software like Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint, Teams, and much more!
