Adult Ed Students Receive Certificates for Digital Literacy Skills

Two Oconee Fall Line Technical College Adult Education students recently received certificates of completion for their digital literacy skills from Northstar Digital Literacy.

As part of OFTC’s Adult Education program all enrolled students participate in assignments that help increase one’s digital literacy skills. To aid in this part of the curriculum, the adult education department endorsed Northstar

Digital Literacy to help students define basic skills needed to perform tasks on computers and online.

When students feel ready they complete a proctored assessment to obtain a Northstar Digital Literacy Certificate which can be used to provide a credential for employment. There are ten areas available for a certificate: Basic Computer, World Wide Web, Windows, Mac Os X, Email, Microsoft Word, Social Media, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Information Literacy.

Rebecca Horning of Dublin obtained a certificate in Social Media, and Pamela Tison of Dublin obtained certificates in Basic Computer, World Wide Web, and Windows 7.
