So you've arrived at GCFLearnFree.org. Now what?
First, you need to know this: Everything at GCFLearnFree.org is completely free. There's no catch and no gotchas.
To get started, decide what you want to learn. We're known pretty well for our technology and Microsoft Office tutorials, so if that's what you're interested in you can just click those tiles from the homepage and be on your way.
If you have a specific question, you can use our search feature, available at the bottom of every page on our site.
If you just want to browse around, our All Topics page is a great place to start.
The content at GCFLearnFree.org is what we call self-paced tutorials. This means these tutorials are available when you are, on your schedule. You can view one lesson or an entire tutorial. And you don't have to create an account or sign in; you can start learning immediately.
If you need a quick answer, click the relevant tutorial, view the applicable lesson, then go on with your day.
If you want to really learn a topic in depth, you can start with the first lesson and work your way through the entire tutorial. You can review the tutorial as many times as you want and anytime you need.
If you create an account (and you really don't have to), the self-paced tutorials you view while signed in will be tracked in your learning history. If you complete an entire tutorial, you will earn an Achievement of Completion. Within your account, you can see where you were last, how many tutorials you have completed, print a self-paced transcript, and download and print your Achievement(s) of Completion. This is great for anyone who wants to track their learning or show proof that they've completed tutorials at GCFLearnFree.org.
In February 2016, we paused our very popular online class program to make much-needed improvements. We expect the new program to be available in late 2016. This new program will eventually offer more class topics, as well as allow us to teach more students than ever before. If you are interested in being notified when the online classes become available, visit this link to join our mailing list.
If you prefer to take your learning on the go, we have mobile apps that can help! With apps available for iPhone/iPad, Android, and Kindle, now you can learn for free anytime, anywhere.
So what are you waiting for? You can start learning right now for free. And if we don't offer what you are looking for, tell us!
