About this Course

If I Googled you, what would I find?

The course, Effective Steps in Digital Footprint will focus on the different dimensions of a digital footprint, including developing an effective online presence, managing your privacy, creating opportunities for networking, balancing, and managing professional and personal presences (e-professionalism). By the end of this course (MOOC) you should be equipped to ensure that your digital footprint works for you, whether you want to be more private online, or are looking to create a more effective and impactful presence.

As we move around the online world we leave tracks and traces of our activity all the time: social media accounts, tagged images, professional presences, scraps of text, but also many artifacts we don’t always realize we are leaving behind, or that others leave about us.

We will introduce you to some of the tools and approaches to effectively manage your online presence (or digital footprint).
