Upgraded Jisc Discovery tool now live

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Jisc Discovery tool helps you to understand and explore your digital capabilities. Following the upgrade announcement we shared with you back in July, Jisc have now confirmed completion of the Discovery tool upgrade.  

You can now access the upgraded version of the tool via the My Learning Essentials ‘Develop your digital capabilities’ resource.

When you first log in, you will now be asked to select from a University of Manchester specific list of subject areas – this change will make our anonymised institutional data even more useful.  

If you have used the tool before, you will be asked to log in to the previous version of the tool first. From there, if you are not automatically redirected to the upgraded version, please clear your browser cookies and log in again via the link in the My Learning Essentials resource.

You can access your reports from the previous version of the tool by logging in via this linkor from the upgraded tool’s dashboard. However, please download your reports as soon as possible, as access to these reports will be removed by December 2022. 

You can learn more about how the Discovery tool can support your digital skills development in this 4 minute article – where Library Student Team members George Bissett and Sara Knurowska share their experiences of using the tool and the accompanying My Learning Essentials resource.
