This collection will be high quality, openly licensed courses and resources to support the development of digital literacy knowledge, skills, and abilities.

We are currently seeking content submissions for the collection that fulfills the requirements of the eight areas of digital literacy thematic competencies, as identified in the AEST’s Digital Literacy Framework: ethical and legal consideration; technology supports; information literacy; digital scholarship; communication and collaboration; creation and curation; digital wellbeing; and community-based learning.

Do you have digital literacy content that will help people:

  • Understand the ethics and legal implications of gathering and sharing digital information?
  • Learn about the risks and benefits of having an online presence?
  • Discover and choose educational software, digital tools and apps?
  • Interpret and validate information?
  • Use technology to collect, analyse, and share research?
  • Create multimedia that can reach different audiences and share stories?
  • Create healthy boundaries with technology and use digital tools to maintain well-being?
  • Communicate and collaborate meaningfully with digital communities? If the answer is “yes”

Content may be in the form of textbooks, courses or course materials, websites, videos, infographics, podcasts, book chapters, journal articles, tools or tutorials, etc.

Submissions must be openly licensed, or content an institution is willing to openly license and make shareable in the collection. Submissions will be reviewed by a group of evaluators from our sector prior to inclusion in the collection.
