      Online Today

      Technology can be great for staying connected but getting started can be a challenge if you have hearing loss and don’t have any experience of using new devices.

      Online Today trains people in Scotland who are deaf or have hearing loss how to get online, set up an email address, stay secure when using the internet and get the most from their digital devices.

      Is there an Online Today session near me?

      Our Digital Skills officer runs group and one-to-one training sessions in community venues, such as libraries. Group sessions are for up to 10 people and last for no more than two hours.

      You will learn the basics about setting up an online presence and how to access web-based bargains, catch-up TV, videos and movie entertainment, as well as how to stay connected with friends and family.

      We also run drop-in sessions where you can come along to ask questions and try out equipment. Find a list of the drop-ins below:
