Learn My Way: free bite-sized learning for beginner digital skills
Digital skills support is at the heart of the National Digital Inclusion Network. Learn My Way helps people with low or no digital skills to gain confidence and learn how to use the internet and digital technologies.
What is Learn My Way?
Learn My Way is a free online platform that helps people gain basic digital skills and improve their digital literacy to make the most of our online world. Our bite-sized topics are suitable for beginners that have no or low digital skills, allowing everyone to benefit from using digital devices and accessing essential online services.
