Develop your digital literacy skills in just five, ten or fifteen minutes a day.

5 minutes of digital literacy (formerly 5 Days of Digital Literacy) is a short and sweet learning resource, which focuses on one of the five areas of our Digital Literacy Framework and covers competencies within each of these areas.

The five areas of the Digital Literacy Framework are:

  1. Finding, using and managing information
  2. Working in the digital age
  3. Creating digital content
  4. Digital responsibilities
  5. Problem solving in the digital world.

5 Minutes of Digital Literacy (5MoDL) runs for five days a month for five months. Every day during the course a new blog post is released and participants are asked to read the post and complete a task. This should take no more than five minutes. The task can be completed at any time and anyone can join and catch up on previous posts. Participants earn a digital badge if they complete all five tasks for each topic, which they could add to their LinkedIn profile and/or CV.

10 Minutes of Digital Literacy (10MoDL) is an intermediate level course that goes a little further than 5MoDL. It is aimed at staff who feel fairly confident with technology, who would like to add to their understanding and potential use of technologies to support learning and teaching. Participants earn a digital badge if they complete all tasks within each week, which can be added to their LinkedIn profile and/or CV.

You can take 10MoDL either after completing 5MoDL, or if you feel confident enough, you can simply start at this level.

15 Minutes of Digital Literacy (15MoDL) is an advanced level course that goes a little further than 5MoDL and 10MoDL. It is aimed at staff who feel fairly confident with technology, who would like to add to their understanding and potential use of technologies to support learning and teaching. Participants earn a digital badge if they complete all tasks within each week, which can be added to their LinkedIn profile and/or CV.

You can take 15MoDL either after completing 5MoDL and 10MoDL, or if you feel confident enough, you can simply start at this level.
