Online Centres Network Resources
Coffee & Computers is now a member of the Online Centres Network (OCN) linking over 5,000 community groups nationwide that provide free digital help. Our membership of OCN provides access to a growing library of digital resources to help you learn on line.

Principal among them are Learn My Way and Make IT Click. Learn My Way is designed for those relatively new to computers, tablets and smartphones and using the Internet. Make IT Click provides a library of external links for delving deeper into subjects. If you register for either service please use C&C’s Centre ID: 8006468.

Using our Centre ID for all registrations helps C&C receive detailed information on your Learn My Way activity. This helps us to help you and provides useful data that recognises C&c’s contribution to getting people online when seeking funding.
