    Using email

    In this course, you will learn all about email accounts on the internet. The course covers how to set up an email account, as well as how to open, read and send emails safely.

    You can use popular free email providers such as Gmail, Outlook (which used to be called Hotmail) and Yahoo to easily create an email account. You can then use email to keep in touch with friends and family, sell things online, contact community groups or businesses, and much more. Having an email account will also let you access other services on the internet, such as banking or video calling with Skype.

    This course has been specially designed for larger screens, so for the best experience, please view these activities on a laptop or desktop computer.
