Forty-four new videos are available on the Self-Directed Learning Centres portal. Most are intended for learning simple computer programming by using the Scratch graphical user interface, and one concerns paying for parking by using a mobile phone. The videos will help you learn about basic programming concepts and orders, learn to draw, working with variables, coordinates, branch points and conditions, random numbers, messages, and the concept of fragmenting problems into smaller problems. The content of the videos corresponds to the European Digital Competence Framework for Citizens (DigComp 2.1, competence area 3: Digital content creation, 3. 4. Programming). Forty-three videos are published in the section Video guides for digital creation and programmingwhile the videos showing how to pay for parking (in Slovenian) with a mobile phone can be found under the Smartphone Use section.

The Self-Directed Learning Centres portal now has a total of 161 videos – 70 are aimed at learning how to use a computer, 48 are about smartphone use, and 43 are intended to learn programming. In addition to the videos, each section also includes short instructions, as well as a description of the knowledge and skills which could be obtained by learning from videos.
