Marylanders Online is a free, statewide program of the University of Maryland Extension (UME) in partnership with the College of Information Studies (INFO) working to promote digital literacy, equity, and inclusion throughout the state of Maryland. 

The Marylanders Online program serves as an accessible digital literacy resource that works to close the digital divide experienced by the thousands of Maryland residents who lack access to the internet, a digital device, or the skills to utilize either. Through the provision of quality resources, tools, education, and support, Marylanders Online's goal is to promote digital literacy throughout the state of Maryland.

Navigating the Marylanders Online Website

The Get Help page provides instructional materials for self-guided learners. The Give Help page is geared towards educators, digital navigators, or those teaching others about technology, programs, and services. The Get Connected page provides information and resources to help Marylanders stay connected to the digital world, such as locating WiFi, securing a device, and finding affordable internet options

Maryland Tech Support Helpline

Maryland residents can connect with the Marylanders Online helpline, a free service staffed by a team of trained Digital Navigators providing computer help and technology support through virtual, one-on-one sessions. Marylanders Online is accessed by calling the toll-free hotline 1-866-206-8467 during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m., and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., or by emailing Visit the calendar to discover digital events in counties across the state. 

Resources for Partners and People

Partners can access a repository of self-guided training resources to share with their community on this website. Reach out to request a University of Maryland Tech Educator on-site to support community training, device distribution, or device setup and tech support. Train-the-trainer programs are also available to empower partnering agencies to offer their own community-based computer training and support services internally.  Partners are invited to add their digital literacy resources for inclusion on the website.

Promotional materials for Marylanders Online are available in multiple languages and several formats: flyers, brochures, and social media graphics. Contact Marylanders Online to have materials shipped to your location.



Marylanders Online believes that digital literacy is more than just a skill, but a way to connect people and communities to vital resources, services, and each other. Join Marylanders Online in the mission to make technology and internet accessible to all.
