How digital-savvy are you? This Belgian test seeks to find out
Can you spot a fake news story or an online scam? What would you do if your smartphone was stolen? Belgium's federal economy minstry is inviting you to test your digital skills with a new online game.
The Digital Duel test features 10 challenges against the clock - from some basic online searching to setting a strong password.
According to the official statistics office body Statbel, about half of Belgians' digital know-how is "basic".
The digital skills gap is not only making it difficult for people to find work, but also go about their day-to-day personal lives. At the end of the 10-question test, a list of digital skills training courses is made available.
You can take the test in English, French, Dutch or German at https://www.digitalduel.be/
