Free Online Digital Literacy Skills Tools
Digital literacy and skills become a pre-condition for employability.
Dear JobScout Users
and Community, Four years ago, JobScout
was launched as an online pilot program across
California to teach Californians how to use the
Internet. Working in partnership with libraries and
other public institutions, JobScout reached
thousands of first-time Internet users throughout
the state and beyond. Most importantly, at a time
when unemployment was at an all-time high and many
workers were finding themselves lost in our
information economy, our team was able to develop a
free, robust online resource to assist in providing
Internet skills needed to find a job.
Today, we announce that the JobScout pilot phase will be coming to a close. Effective September 1, 2016, JobScout (myjobscout.org) will no longer be available online or in the iTunes Store or Google Play Store. We have been honored to provide this resource for free to our users during its pilot. We will now take our lessons learned during this trial period and focus on the next phase of digital literacy work for TRAIL.
Our team will be in contact with all of our partners, supporters and other stakeholders to facilitate the transition and to answer any questions.
We are interested in securing partners and investors to continue the next phase of TRAIL and JobScout. Your company or organization may contact us regarding partnership opportunities.
We set out to have people discover the Internet – our team is honored to have been a part of this exploration for our users, and thank all of you in California and around the globe that have used JobScout and helped us contribute to the success of the pilot.
