All students are expected to use a range of IT packages including Outlook for email, Word for assignments, web browsers, and possibly Excel and PowerPoint. They also need to be aware of good practice in saving and backing up work and printing to avoid problems at key times such as assignment deadlines. The Library can provide support for this.
If your students need to develop specific digital skills we may be able to offer training sessions within their module, or as an optional extra. We have offered training in PowerPoint for both presentations and to create posters; Excel for presenting and analysing data, and Microsoft Word to create long documents/dissertations, introducing students to more advanced features in Word. Other areas where we have provided support and training include Qualtrics, our online survey tool, understanding and developing your digital profile, understanding copyright, and effective searching (including finding free images).
