The University of Edinburgh’s 23 Things for Digital Knowledge is an award winning (LILAC Credo Digital Literacy Award 2017) self-directed course, run by Information Services Group. The programme seeks to expose you to a range of digital tools for your personal and professional development as a researcher, academic, student, or professional. The aim is for you to spend a little time each week building up and expanding your skills.

The University of Edinburgh (UoE) launched the course in September 2016 to enhance digital literacy for primarily the UoE community but also a broad external audience. Created by Stephanie (Charlie) Farley from our Educational Design and Engagement team, 23 Things for Digital Knowledge is an open online self-paced course inspired by 23 Things Oxford and based on the original 23 Things program which ran at the Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County in the USA in 2006.

The course is aimed at students and staff at the UoE, and open to anyone interested in taking part.
