Welcome to Digital Academic Literacy

The Digital Academic Literacy content is taught across faculties as an attempt to provide the students with the necessary basic e-learning skills as required for academic purposes. The content changes as the digital media and technology advance and in accordance with the resources provided by the university in teaching and walk-in computer labs. All of this is done in consultation with the faculty.

Face-to-face scheduled training

Training is offered throughout the semester at Thintana, BOE, Education and B20 lab. Currently, the team is offering training every day of the week, from 8h30 – 16h10, including lunch period. In some cases, training is offered at four labs concurrently.
