You can use this Orientation Guide independently or as part of the overall process.
If you already know which (digital) soft skills you want to develop or highlight, then you can jump straight in and follow the next steps.
If you want to evaluate your (digital) soft skills first, and then either identify what you need to work on further or what you want to include in your CV, ePortfolio or letter of application, then we suggest you first use the self-assessment tool. You can come back to this guide at any point and consult the different sections freely.
Studying online vs face-face will give you an insight into what it’s like to study online and some useful tips from other students to help you get organised.
The power of MOOCs helps you understand what MOOCs are, and how they can help you develop (digital) soft skills, whether it’s through the content, the activities or both.
The OER option explains what Open Educational Resources are and how these can also help you develop certain soft skills.
