Northstar Computer Basics

Working on Laptop

The Northstar Digital Literacy Assessment, offered through Selover Public Library, is aimed at helping adults acquire the skills they need in today’s workplace. People without basic computer know-how are at a disadvantage when it comes to finding a job because employers expect basic computer skills for most jobs, including many entry-level positions. Selover Public Library offers Northstar training because it will help our patrons have a better chance at getting jobs and getting ahead.

 

The free set of assessments includes self-guided modules: Essential Computer Skills (Basic Computer Skills, Internet Basics, Using Email, Windows, Mac OS), Essential Software Skills (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), and Using Technology in Daily Life (Social Media, Information Literacy, and Creative Job Search). Closed-captioning is available and screen readers are supported.
