Updates to Be Connected learning site

Finding learning content on the Be Connected learning website will soon become easier. Read about some important updates coming to the Be Connected learning website in October 2023.

Some updates are being made to the Be Connected learning website to make it easier to use. A new search function will let you discover Be Connected learning material – including courses, articles, and podcasts – all in the one spot.

You’ll also be able to narrow your search by using filters to find content by: 

  • subject - so you can specify what you want to learn more about
  • device - to find content most relevant to your computer, mobile phone or tablet
  • content type - so you can decide how you want to learn
  • level - to find content that best suits your digital skills.
  • Some other small changes to the website will be made at the same time, including some wording and colours.

    The new search features will be available from Friday, 13 October 2023.

    The Be Connected website will be down for maintenance on Thursday, 12 October 2023 while these updates are made.
