Collaborating Online



*This credential is only available to current RMIT students

The Collaborating Online credential sits within the Digital Literacy stack. This stack is designed as a tool to support lifelong learning; to prepare you for living, learning and working in a digital society.

With the rise of the internet the way you present yourself in online platforms is just as important as your face-to-face interactions. This includes participating online to connect with communities that share, build and sustain meaningful content.

To be fully digitally literate, you will not only be a capable, confident consumer of information and technology, but you will also become an active participant as a producer of content.

With today's workplace harnessing technology as a powerful tool for collaboration and communication, employees who are effective with this fundamental digital literacy skill, are valued by employers.
