If this period of confinement has shown anything, it is that digital skills are more necessary than ever. Tools such as Zoom, Skype, Slack or Hangouts have helped us to hold remote meetings with total normality and among a large number of people. The WhatsApp rate has increased by as much as 700% and the networks have supported the traffic increases inherent in telework and leisure resulting from this situation.
But what about people who do not have the necessary skills to take advantage of these tools? Isn’t this a good time to buy them?
And not only them, of course. Anyone who wants to increase their knowledge now has a golden opportunity to do so. In addition to the reliability of the networks, there is a wide range of free courses focused on digital skills, of all types and levels.
