Online Resource NorthStar – Basic Computer Course Online

Level 2 - Early to intermediate reader

NorthStar is part of Literacy Minnesota. They have developed an online basic computer skills course for adults with low literacy skills. In this free online course, participants learn about different devices. They learn their way around each device, basic mouse and keyboard navigation skills, and some of the settings and organization features on a device (e.g., files, screen brightness)

The course features a set of interactive slides with an audio option. Participants can take a short assessment before and after. At the end of the course they can print off a record of their score. A great way to introduce a learner to computer basics.
