eSkills is an interactive, asynchronous digital literacy course available for both Moodle and D2L Learner Management Systems developed by RRC Polytech’s Language Training Centre. Lessons can also be delivered independently.
Through funding from IRCC, five lessons were developed and piloted with learners across Canada. Each lesson takes approximately 5 hours to complete. Topics include: Professional Usernames; Choosing a Secure Password; Protecting Your Online Identity; Browser Basics; and Advertisements vs Content.
Interactive elements include Quizlet, H5P, and Articulate Storyline Simulations. Facilitator’s guides and facilitation templates are available inside both LMS delivery modes. Digital badges and certificates are available for learners who successfully complete each lesson.
The eSkills.ca project is now complete and the digital literacy course can be accessed by ESL teachers to use with Newcomer clients through the Avenue.ca website. You can also download eSkills to use on your own Moodle or D2L Learner Management Systems.
