Price not

with Anne Patterson

Calendar Sep 24, 2018 , runs for 7 weeks
The Northstar Digital Literacy Project defines basic skills needed to perform tasks on computers and online. The ability of adults to perform these tasks can be assessed through online, self-guided modules. Included are basic computer digital literacy standards and modules in ten main areas: Basic Computer Use, Internet, Windows Operating System, Mac OS, Email, Microsoft Word, Social Media, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Information Literacy. Northstar is an assessment, not a curriculum. The website is: Testing for a certificate is free and available to anyone who needs to assess their skills. Lab times vary each semester and one-on-one sessions may be set up by appointment. Please note that there is a fee for instructor led courses and one-on-one sessions for non-academic students. You can call our office at 288-4703 to set up an appointment or to learn more about the program. We are pleased to be a Northstar sponsoring site. This program will help our students develop computer literacy, demonstrate basic digital competency, and obtain a credential to add to their resume and assist them in the job search.

Access to a computer or tablet and the Internet is required. Note: This is a self-paced, online study program. If you wish to earn a certificate of achievement, you must come to the adult ed office to take the proctored assessments.
