The Learnmyway website, used for computer sessions, offers courses on a wide range of digital skills. For complete beginners, the Getting Started and Online Basics courses cover learning how to use a mouse and keyboard, using email, finding online information, staying safe online and using public services online. Learners may also do a more advanced course on using health information online. Library staff are on hand to support beginners through these courses.
For people who want to expand their digital skills, there are more advanced courses available on everything from shopping and banking online to skills for jobseekers. These are not included in the supported sessions, but learners can progress onto any of them free of charge on a library computer. Current courses are listed below.
