Introducing the Digital Connections Toolkit!

The Digital Connections Toolkit is a resource aimed at empowering students to facilitate connections and engage with their own communities online.

Amidst a global pandemic, students are increasingly living their entire lives online. With so many platforms available, each equipped with a myriad of features, it can be tough to figure out which ones are best suited for individuals’ needs. The Digital Connections Toolkit is a response to a need for students to be able to explore platforms that meet their needs to make connections with others and communities in these uncertain times.  

This resource is something that will be continually updated to meet community needs in an accessible manner. With all information in one virtual space we aim for this toolkit to:  

  • Highlight features of the most popular platforms 
  • Spark new ideas for students to connect and collaborate 
  • Consider best practices to implement so that virtual gatherings go smoothly 
  • Help choose a solution that fits students’ needs to connect virtually 

Learn more by visiting to explore these platforms, the resources available, have any questions answered, and much more!
