Foundations of digital inclusion
NTEN courses run for one week and are offered twice a year.
Learn about digital divides in the United States and its impacts on individuals in different communities.
Terminology and data
Get familiar with the key concepts, terminology, and data sources you’ll use to research and plan digital inclusion programs.
Programs and practices
Learn how digital inclusion practitioners create and manage programs that address different aspects of digital divides.
As our society becomes increasingly dependent on the digital economy, understanding the barriers to accessing digital resources is critical for nonprofits, education institutions, and governments.
In this course, you’ll dive into the core questions of digital inclusion. You’ll explore academic and data resources, and discuss real-world programs that can inform and inspire your organization’s own digital inclusion programs.
