Digital Literacy Curriculum
Note: A major component of the IT2020 vision is for every faculty, staff and student to be a good Digital Citizen — which includes attaining a basic level of digital literacy. As such, these FREE classes from Microsoft are strongly encouraged for the entire campus as are those available through our agreement with Lynda.com.
The goal of Digital Literacy is to teach and assess basic computer concepts and skills so that people can use computer technology in everyday life to develop new social and economic opportunities for themselves, their families, and their communities.
Whether you are entirely new to computing or have some experience, this curriculum will help you develop a fundamental understanding of computers. From using the Internet, to sending e-mail, to creating a résumé, the Digital Literacy Curriculum helps you develop the essential skills you need to begin computing with confidence.
The Microsoft Digital Literacy curriculum now has three levels:
* Microsoft Digital Literacy Basic curriculum
* Microsoft Digital Literacy Standard curriculum
* Microsoft Digital Literacy Advanced curriculum
