This five weeks Basic Digital Skill (BDS) course is essentially a practical workshop, where learners will be taught how to use their digital devices such as smartphone, computers, tablets and iPADs. You will learn how to connect to WiFi, adjust the default settings on digital devices, download apps and use FaceTime for video communication. The course therefore offers you a gentle introduction into how to use your digital devices and navigate the internet to purchase things and the use of online services. In addition, you will be taught how to protect yourself whilst on the internet such as passwords including the skills for being safe and legal online. Please note the course is not designed for tutoring you in the use of the Microsoft suite of software, as there are other courses which address this need such as the Basic IT how to use a computer.
