Client: Public Library Assoc.
15% of Americans don’t use the Internet. These individuals often have less opportunities economically, educationally, and socially due to a lack of digital literacy skills. Libraries, non-profits, and government agencies across the nation are working to ensure these individuals are not excluded from our increasingly online society but these organizations lack the resources needed to meet the demand for training and support.
The Public Library Association, with funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, set out to create an online hub for digital literacy support and training. DigitalLearn.org was created to provide access to engaging and easy to use online classes for digital skills learners as well as a community of practice for digital literacy trainers to share resources, tools, and best practices.

For everyone involved from top to bottom: Thank you. You are giving us the best gift one could ever receive: free education, which is a key that can open any door in life.
When I started a new position recently, I met with my new supervisor to go over technology training ideas. As we traded our favorite resources, DigitalLearn.org came up right away. It almost went without saying that we both knew about it!
