Essential Skills Tools, Resources and Modules

Students desiring a planned approach to building their Essential Skills will have access to learning modules through Blackboard using a Douglas College student number.  Please keep in mind that the modules are not graded but simply intended to build skills. 

The modules are simple in design and skill-specific.  Students are encouraged to choose only the modules they need and work through them at their own pace.  There is no pass or fail.  Each module will provide students with the ability to review their own knowledge of the content before starting.

This will ensure that the time is spent working on only what is needed.  Interested students will need to email a request to a Skills Coach to receive course access.

Students are welcome to access the free online Essential Skills resources that contain downloadable worksheets and files shown below.
