Have a go at assessing your digital competencies online

Digital Framework


You may already know that at the beginning of this term we have launched the NTU Digital Framework learning room in NOW:

  • to support staff in their development of digital competencies and
  • to provide guidance on the Framework for those involved in Curriculum Refresh.

We have now added a link to the Jisc Digital Capability Discovery Tool to the learning room.


What is Jisc Digital Capability Discovery Tool?

  • Jisc (Joint Information Systems Committee) has recently published a public beta version of the Digital Capability Discovery Tool – one of the outputs of the Building Digital Capability project.
  • The aim of this tool is to support staff working in universities and colleges to reflect on their digital capabilities.
  • The digital capabilities that are assessed in this tool are closely related to the areas of practice featured in the NTU Digital Framework.

How can it help me?

  • You can use this tool to conduct a self assessment and raise your self-awareness of your digital capabilities.
  • You will get a summary of your personal digital profile, including a suggested list of actions and resources to enhance your digital capabilities.

How can I access this tool?

  • As of April 2017 the Jisc Digital Capability Discovery Tool is in beta stage, which means that its features and functionalities could evolve as the development process continues.

Please Note:  NOW  is an internal resource only accessible by NTU staff & students
