A Digital Edge: Essentials for the Online Learner
This new online course,A Digital Edge: Essentials for the Online Learner, is designed to support students to learn how to learn online. The underlying premise is that learning online requires a new set of skills to master. It is not the same as learning in a physical classroom.
The course is a collaboration between a team of experienced online educators and researchers in DCU’s National Institute for Digital Learning (NIDL), the DCU Students’ Union and the IUA Enhancing Digital Teaching and Learning project. Available to students worldwide through FutureLearn, the course will give students the edge to succeed online. It equips them with the tools and know-how to get the most out of their studies and thrive as lifelong learners.
