Our Digital Essentials For Staff collection on LinkedIn Learning has been launched to support staff to develop their digital skills as part of their personal and career development.

Since the launch of the collection OD&PL have held a series of virtual 30-minute roadshow sessions to introduce the courses. If you missed these roadshows, watch our short video to get a quick introduction to the collection and how to access the courses or log in using the link below.

The courses cover a range of subjects, including digital essentials for new staff, digital wellbeing, online meetings, Microsoft Teams, OneDrive, Microsoft Office Suite, Office 365 and accessibility.

The courses will be particularly useful for new staff and any member of staff who wishes to improve their digital skills in line with the University’s Digital Literacy Framework, and can be used effectively as part of the Staff Review and Development Scheme (SRDS). Once you’ve completed a course, or collection, you can share your personal and professional development with colleagues and managers via links, certificates, or LinkedIn Profiles.

Our digital essential collection consists of 8 individual areas. They can each be completed in any order, and within each collection, you’ll find a range of resources, which again can be completed in any order. These courses can be completed on LinkedIn Learning with your free University of Leeds account, courses can be completed self-paced and accessed anytime and anywhere online or on mobile.
