The DELSA Training programme is a set of 10 courses on topics central to digital literacy. The aim of the online programme is to equip adults with lower digital skills, and employees and jobseekers left behind digital innovation processes, to develop digital competence, or the ability to use technology in order to solve problems and accomplish tasks.
The training database is free and open to anyone interested in improving their digital skills and knowledge. The 10 courses are also based on competence areas identified by the European Commission's Digital Competence Framework (DigComp) and offer a variety of tips to learners in terms of:
- Learning how to protect personal data and digital privacy and using the internet in a safe and responsible way.
- Solving technical problems in OS (operation systems), identifying needs and responses and discovering more information on typical issues and basic principles of troubleshooting.
- Using mobile and software applications for work or social life to connect to others online.
- Using the internet to find, verify and manage information.
- Developing digital content in different formats.
- Protecting devices and using digital technologies for communication and collaboration.
- Fostering digital citizenship skills.
