Digital Literacy is a self-paced course designed to provide participants with the skills needed to navigate technology in the workplace. It is comprised of five modules: Computer Operations, Internet Browsing, Digital Communications, Digital Documents, and Digital Security. Each module is made up of a course component and a posttest. Each course has instructional content, a knowledge-check quiz, and a hands-on practice exercise that allows the participant to apply the skills to real life, practical situations.
