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.
