Community learning are also meeting with partners Bristol and North Somerset later this month to begin working on a digital project around developing online teaching materials. As part of this work Google Classroom is currently being trialled in some of our South Gloucestershire classes.
There are plenty of other free courses available at South Gloucestershire libraries for anyone looking to discover how being online can really make a difference. Once completed, certificates can be printed as a record of achievement for each course. No computer or technical skills are required to attend the sessions and friendly tutors and staff are always on hand to help out.
