Bye for now...

That’s it – we’ve made it!

We hope you’ve enjoyed this free online course on Becoming a Digital Citizen: An Introduction to the Digital Society. We also hope you’ve been able to engage in some lively discussions with your fellow learners, and pick up some tips on how to harness the potential of digital technologies.

It needn’t end here: there’s a whole digital world to explore anew, putting into practice some of what you’ve got from the last three weeks. And if you want more from us, why not take a look at the University of York’s Digital Skills Guides: while they’re predominantly aimed at York students, the guides and tutorials there are open to anyone, and they pick up on a number of the themes we’ve examined during this course. You could also try your hand at some of the University of York’s other MOOCs if you like!

Evidence your learning

Now that you’ve reached the end of the course, don’t forget to check your progress page. You can buy a Certificate of Achievement to prove what you’ve learned on this course. This personalised certificate and transcript details the syllabus and learning outcomes, making it ideal evidence of your continuing professional development (CPD). The Certificate comes in both printed and digital formats, so you can easily add it to your portfolio, your CV, and even your LinkedIn profile!

To be eligible, you must mark at least 90% of the steps in this course as complete and have scored an average of 70% or above in the three end-of-week review tests.

Alternatively, if you have completed more than half of steps on the course (and attempted all of the test questions), you can buy a Statement of Participation as a memento of taking part.
