DALS stepped up to the challenge
Here at DALS we have created and delivered a whole range of new online courses through the Covid-19 crisis. Over 700 learners took advantage of these new online courses and the feedback has been excellent. Here are some of the comments we've had:
Improved motivation for learning topics outside my work which I haven't done for over 40 years!
I enjoyed it and realise I could do more online courses.
It has pushed me to step outside my comfort zone, re-learn things I learnt years ago, learn new skills and to keep mentally healthy in the lockdown.
Has given me confidence in using Excel
