Conquer the Computer

You’re online, you know the computer can make your life easier and better. Maybe you have a friend or family member who has been reluctant to get online. Some people who are new to using computers may think it is too hard, too expensive or not for people like them. They are not alone. Help them learn why using a computer can be worth the time and effort.

DigitalLearn is a collection of short (6-22 minute) classes that teach people one computer skill at a time to accomplish important tasks like searching for information on a new appliance, buying plane tickets and applying for jobs. Most DigitalLearn classes are offered in English and Spanish.

If someone wants personal help getting started, have them call us at 785-580-4400 or stop by and talk to a librarian. We can help them set-up an email address (needed for a DigitalLearn account) and direct them to free in-person classes at the library that support DigitalLearn. If they are ready to jump in on their own but don’t have an email address, DigitalLearn offers a quick online class on creating an email that is linked directly below the email address box on the sign-up page.

Check out all the classes available.

DigitalLearn is a program brought to you by Cox Communications and the Public Library Association.
