The Learning Digital Skills in a Time-limited Program brief examines an approach to providing digital literacy acquisition support to learners who entered a cohort group that met together on a regular schedule, but worked at their own pace through the available content over the course of a fixed time frame. The key discoveries that follow summarize one partner’s time-limited program design; however, time-limited approaches were explored by other partners as well. This brief details how one program struck a balance between meeting the needs of learners and maximizing limited program resources.
