East Riding residents can benefit from free self-paced computer courses using the free public access computers in libraries or by using their own device from home or on the go.

Learn My Way has over 30 free courses that include using a touchscreen, using email, creating spreadsheets, and how to keep personal data safe. Participants can also learn how to become a Digital Champion to inspire people in their community to develop their digital skills.

Gary Smith, Digital Services Officer (Libraries), said: "Self-paced online learning is ideal for people who want to do short bite-size courses to develop their digital skills. You will need to be a library member to use the free public computers and friendly staff will be on hand to help get you started. If you have your own device, you can do the courses from home, on the go, or pop into the library and use our free unlimited WiFi. The Learn My Way platform can be found at: https://www.learnmyway.com/ and when registering just type in and select your local library as your Centre."

Councillor Mike Medini, portfolio holder for cultural and leisure assets, said: "Learn My Way is just one of the many things that Libraries and Customer Services do to promote digital skills to our residents. I hope that anybody who chooses to do these short online courses will develop their digital skills, which are such a key part of modern life."
