Digital Literacy

Get your savvy on.

Course Description

This ain't your grandma's digital literacy course. Good thing, too, because you'd have some trouble accessing the Internet via a typewriter.

We skip all the duh-moments and go straight for the meat in these ten lessons. Sure, we'll do a little how-to, but we're more interested in the why.

Because let's face it: the Internet is confusing.

Technology Requirements

All work can be done via the Shmoop website.
