Written content: creating, presenting and referencing

Courses provided by ISD Digital Skills Development to support writing and referencing tools, and presentation software.

These courses cover creation of written content in the form of a document, 'Sway', notebook or presentation.  We also offer sessions on using referencing software to conduct a literature review and we have one on digital book making.
