Develop your digital literacy skills in just five or ten 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.

You can join the course at any time and work at your own pace.

5 Minutes of Digital Literacy (5MoDL) includes 25 blog posts, each with an activity. Each post and activity should take no more than five minutes. Participants earn a digital badge if they complete all five tasks for each topic, which they can add to their LinkedIn profile and/or CV as well as share on social media platforms.

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.
