SKILLS FOR SUCCESS & ESSENTIAL SKILLS TOOLS & RESOURCES

Blackboard Skills Development Modules

Students can use their student number and log onto Blackboard to access a variety of self-directed skill development modules. 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 essentialskills@douglascollege.ca to receive course access.
