The Credo Digital Award for Information Literacy rewards an innovative/high impact digital resource developed by a UK-based individual or group.

The award was judged by Katharine Reedy (Learning & Teaching Development Manager, Open University) and Josie Fraser (Social and Educational Technologist). Katharine explained: “we both agreed this is a superb resource which builds digital literacy through a well-designed combination of information, discovery and social interaction. It is very flexible in how it can be used, with bite-size chunks of learning, and accreditation through badging for those who wish to work through the whole course. It therefore appeals to a wide range of learners.”
