Free Online Courses

Online classes are great because they can be completed on your own time at your own pace.


DigitalLearn is an initiative of the Public Library Association. With their easy-to-follow tutorials, you can learn to use a computer to do almost anything! If you are new to computers, haven't used them for a while, are a little unsure and uncomfortable, or just need a bit of a refresher, they have the tools to help you tackle technology at your own pace and gain the confidence you need to succeed.


Alison offers training via video in Computer Basics, Security and Privacy, and various software and hardware. Classes are offered in both English and Arabic. Sign up for free at the link above.


ThoughtCo. has compiled a list of free online computer classes, including those listed above at Alison. They break down the classes into levels suited for beginning, intermediate, and advanced learners. Find something just right for you at the above link!
