Published on

NCompass Live - 7/15/15

Would you like a chance to brush up on your desktop skills – and maybe learn some new ones? The Nebraska Library Commission now offers online classes from Skillsoft free to Nebraska public library staff. There are over 450 online, self-paced, interactive classes available on Word, Excel, Computer Security, Operating Systems, and more! Laura Johnson, the NLC’s Continuing Education Coordinator, will demo the website, show you how to sign up, and explain how you can earn C.E. credits.

  • I am so pleased that I found you! I have suffered from Sleep Apnea for years. I have tried everything to fix the problem but nothing has worked. For the last years I have been trying to use a CPAP machine on and off but it is very difficult to sleep with. It's noisy and very uncomfortable. I had no idea there was a natural way to help me. I am so pleased that I found you! ♥♥♥

  9. 9. Naomi Hemphill, Madison Soon after I learned about Skillsoft, my library updated the checkout computer from Windows XP to Windows 8.1. It was a big change, but I remembered seeing Windows 8 learning assets offered on Skillsoft. After viewing the Skillsoft asset I navigate our new computer with no problems!
