Learn My Way courses

The Learn My Way 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.
