About The Event
We all use various digital tools in our day-to-day lives: mobile phones, email, social networks, cloud storage. But what is best practice for backing up important media and files? Is a chat platform such as Slack a better alternative to email in the workplace? How do you manage various social media platforms that represent your business let alone all the passwords you need to remember? Still emailing your colleagues various versions of that all-important document instead of collaborating online with versioning tools?
This course will help you create a digital toolbox to suit your digital environment.
