Help someone to learn the online basics with the latest version of Learn My Way
Learn My Way, the online digital skills learning platform from Good Things Foundation, has just had a major upgrade. The free online learning resource is available for anyone to take part in entry level online learning.
Getting online for the first time can be a daunting task. At Digital Communities Wales, we encourage people who are helping others to get online to see it from the learner’s perspective and focus on inspiring activities related to hobbies or interests to make the learning more engaging.
There are many digital skills an individual may need to develop to confidently navigate being online, and we highly recommend Learn My Way to level up your own digital skills or support someone else’s development.
In this blog, we speak to the developers of Learn My Way to explore the platform and its new features.
