There are resources available for students (elementary, middle school, high school, and college), as well as for adults seeking to find a job, brush up computer skills, or study for the GED or U.S. Citizenship tests.  There is even a section specifically for Spanish speakers.

LearningExpress courses play like video presentations.  You can skip to a specific section using the menu on the left.  You can also pause, play, skip to the beginning or the end, and adjust the volume using the controls at the bottom of the player.  If you want to go back to a particular point in the course later on, click the Bookmark Selection button to save your place.

Getting the Most Out of LearningExpress

Not sure where to find what you need on LearningExpress?  Just type a topic that interests you into the search box (located in the upper lefthand corner of most pages on the site) and click the magnifying glass icon to see a list of related materials.

And don’t forget to consult the site’s Help section for more tips and instructions.  Just click the small yellow Help link in the upper righthand corner of the page (right next to My Center and Logout).

The course will stop periodically to give you Lab Exercises to complete (in this case, in Microsoft Word).  Just click the Play button to continue the class once you’ve completed the exercise.
