Developing Digital Fluency
Coventry University is committed to embedding digital fluency into the curriculum and enabling students to develop web literacies through authentic communication practices that are essential to work and life in contemporary societies. In line with that strategic priority, Coventry.Domains gives access to content management systems like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, MediaWiki and other web publishing and collaboration tools that are commonplace in many industry sectors.
The possibility for students to use such systems to gather and disseminate content created throughout their studies may enhance their employability and help them position themselves into their respective fields, gaining visibility before entering the job market.
Lecturers may use their space to chronicle their professional presence online, providing a user-friendly space to help them share their teaching, research interests and publications online. Coventry.Domains gives them a sandbox for exploring emerging scholarly practices and may be used for a wide range of academic purposes: designing sites to house course resources, creating dedicated sites for research projects, exploring new tools for teaching and learning, etc.
