Having been in a state of fear and paralysis regarding the absolute need to become more digitally fluent in order to continue what has been a very rewarding career up to now, I feel so much more confident about my ability to build these skills, and perhaps even enjoy it! This programme, which took me about 2 hours to complete, was a great investment in my future, I believe - most notably because of the courage I've been able to draw from its content to move forward on my learning journey. I enjoyed very much that it clearly and systematically packaged a structured way to proceed - a place to start that is clear, and makes sense to me. My next step will most certainly be the more detailed Virtual Work Skills for the Modern World Programme.
