Google launches mobile digital skills training app

People of all ages and skill levels can personalise their learning plan to build confidence in everything from developing a web presence to online advertising

Google has announced the launch of a free mobile app that can help anyone to learn digital skills, as part of its wider commitment to upskill individuals across the country.

Available on the Google Play Store as Digital Garage and Apple's App Store as Digital Workshop, the app has been designed to be accessible for people learning at different paces, helping to build confidence in key areas such as developing a web presence, understanding website ranking, using keywords, and online advertising.

Available as a download or hands-free audio, users can create a personalised learning plan to help them meet specific goals and even take an exam to earn Google's certificate in digital marketing fundamentals.

Alina Dimofte, skills and education policy manager at Google, commented: “The Digital Garage app is designed for those who want to pick up digital skills but lead busy lives. The hands-free, bite-sized lessons are ideal for users who are constantly on the move.

“Whether it’s professionals on the daily commute or busy parents preparing the family dinner, we want to ensure that everyone has access to the best digital training available out there.”
