Learn how to navigate today's technology with simple instructions and guided videos.
This grant-funded project acts as an online hub for digital literacy support and training. The site launched in June 2013 and is intended to build upon and foster the work of libraries and community organizations as they work to increase digital literacy across the nation.
Included in DigitalLearn.org is a collection of self-directed tutorials for end-users to increase their digital literacy. Courses are based on the most basic skills, such as using a computer, navigating a web site, and searching. Modules are video-based with narration, 6 to 22 minutes long, written in plain language (communication learners can understand the first time they hear or read it), and often at an elementary to middle school reading level. The modules help learners practice basic skills like using a mouse, creating an email address, navigating a website and more. Once learners have practiced the basics, they can move on to more specific topics to help them apply for a job, be productive, connect with friends and family, and to stay safe online. Intermediate courses include searching online for quality health information, using Microsoft Word, applying for jobs and much more! DigitalLearn.org courses can also be adapted to support other teaching methods, including instructor-led classroom instruction and just-in-time individual assistance.
