Welcome to Digital Skills at Work!
This week, as you are digging deeper into the concept of digital skills at work, you may ask yourself what digital skills are needed for today’s workplace. In broad terms, digital skills are the skills needed to work in a digital environment, for example to communicate using teleconferencing tools or send emails; organize information in spreadsheets, etc. Digital skills can be more specific in each field of work; often, with customized software used for specific professions. For example, accountants use Quickbooks, while engineers work with AutoCAD.
In this thread, first introduce yourself to other learners in the course. Here are some questions to guide you:
1) What are your goals in this course? What are you planning to learn or improve on?
2) What skills would you like to learn or practice in this course?
3) What are your expectations from the course instructor and other learners?
Then, think about a workplace familiar to you and list digital skills required to function in that workplace. What would happen if a person didn’t have the digital skills required for the job? How digital skills can improve the quality of work?

Hi, my name is Marina. In my opinion, in our time digital skills became a very important part of our life, so to learn new digital skills is useful for those who are in the process of job search as well as for those who want to develop their career. Today a lot of new features and applications appear in the digital field and sometimes it’s very difficult to track and understand which one we need and which one is useless specifically for us. I expect from the course to learn about new technical innovations that can help me to find a job and can be helpful at workplace.
