ALTA has asked the question: How can we deliver literacy instruction in an efficient, interactive way to members of the public who have not previously been able to participate in our community classes for one reason or another? The answer is ALTA Online.

Now we answer some of your frequently asked questions on this new offering.

I heard that ALTA is free, so why do I have to pay for ALTA Online?
