The BCIT Library is happy to let you know about a learning opportunity through the Learning Hub available to all BCIT students, faculty, and staff.
Digital Citizenship is the first course available in the Digital Literacy series. The Digital Literacy series will eventually be a suite of four self-directed online courses available for Self-Registration in the Learning Hub.
Digital Citizenship consists of eleven individual modules, and each module is individually badged when successfully completed.
The eleven modules cover the following topics as they relate to participating in the digital world:
• Legal and Ethical Issues
• Balanced Attitudes toward Technology
• Digital Footprint
• Self Image and Identity
• Environmental Issues
• Social Issues
• Commerce, Finance and Currency
This is a self-paced, self-directed course, so it is up to participants how much or how fast they want to complete it. This online course is designed to be done at an individual’s own pace.
Should completion of the course assist your students in achieving your course’s and/or program’s outcomes, you can direct your students to register for the Digital Citizenship course as follows:
1. Log into the Learning Hub
2. Go to myTools on the navigation bar, click the arrow for the drop-down menu
3. Scroll to the very bottom of the list to find Self-Registration, and click on it.
4. Find Digital Citizenship on the list of Self-Registration courses, and click on the linked Course Offering Name.
5. On the registration page, click Register
6. Go back to the Learning Hub home page and the course will be available and accessible in MyCourses.
Interested in pulling individual modules from the course into your own online course in the Learning Hub?
The Library is also making all of the individual modules available to you to import into your own Learning Hub course. They will be available in the Learning Object Repository of the Learning Hub. You can search for them by using the term: “Digital Citizenship”. Specifically:
1. In your Learning Hub course, go to the Table of Contents, and select “Add Object from LOR” from the drop-down menu.
2. In the Search For box, type in Digital Citizenship.
3. Select the module(s) that you would like to import and then click Next
4. On the Retrieve Object page, select ‘Copy as Content’ if you would like to import the entire module intact (recommended).
5. Choose where you would like the module to be placed within your existing course and the corresponding course files.
6. Select Copy.
Note that the quiz associated with each module will not be added if you import the module from the Learning Hub’s Learning Object Repository.
If quiz and badge completion is important for your intended learning outcome, then having your students complete the module via the Self-Registered course will be the best option.
