    and zooming

    Following on from our first course on key touchscreen gestures Tapping and swiping, in this course we are going to learn about two more, equally important gestures – scrolling and zooming.

    Below you will find three options for learning about them:

    • Watch it: There's a short video to watch, demonstrating how to scroll and zoom using a smart device.
    • Read it: You can read all about these key gestures in our handy online guide. You might also like to download the printable version of this guide to keep for future reference. You can find it in a range of languages under the Print the guide section at the bottom of this page.
    • Try it: For smart devices only. If you are using your smart device, why not have a go at practising your scrolls and zooms. This informative activity takes you through a number of different scenarios where these gestures come into their own.
