Nowadays, educators/researchers not only need to have expertise in their particular areas, but also need to have awareness of learning technologies and basic Web/Internet skills  such as, HTML, web browsers plug-ins and Apps. For example, you need to understand embedded HTML codes to some extent if you want to use Twitter feeds in LMS; you need to know a bit Unicode-based and non-Unicode applicationws if you wonder why your text become non-readable Cyrillic or question marks when you try copy/paste.

Shall I say that’s why “digital literacy” is highly required? Lacking the skills needed to apply digital technologies to education, people (both students and staff) need to develop a fundamental understanding of digital technologies (computers, Internet, mobiles, etc).

Well, it’s a good thing that we realised what is really needed. Two e-learning resources for today.
