About This Course

Digital Transformation is the process of using digital technologies to create new — or modify existing — business processes, culture, and customer experiences to meet changing business and market requirements. This reimagining of business and how information is communicated in the digital age is digital transformation.

Examples of Digital Transformation are all around us! We used to go to Blockbuster, but now many of us have Netflix. We used to do all of our shopping in stores, but now many of us shop online. We used to only be able to learn First Nations languages one-on-one or from textbooks, now we can learn online.

Our new Digital Transformation course is for Indigenous learners who want to better understand and utilize digital technologies in their daily lives. This course would be a benefit to individuals who want to digitally transform their business or workplace or are interested in a career in digital transformation.
