If you're reading this blog chances are good that you know how to use the computer. But do your grandparents? How about your neighbors, your friends, your aunts & uncles, your co-workers? We all know people who don't know how to use the computer and wish they could! Well, tell 'em that their time has come. The CTC offers a free series on computer basics, and the cycle starts next week.
- Monday, 3/5, 2-3:30 p.m., Getting Started - Spend time getting to know the mouse, because you won't go far without clicking!
- Monday, 3/12, 2-3:30 p.m., Internet 101 - Learn about the Internet - what it is, how to navigate it and how to search for information.
- Monday, 3/19, 2-3:30 p.m., Yahoo! Email Basics - Learn how to set up and operate an email account; even if you already have an account you can learn how to make the best use of it.
These classes, as well as the final two classes in the series (Saving and Finding Files and Staying Safe Online, both taking place in April) will equip learners of all ages to become savvy computer users, able to research, communicate and be entertained online- not to mention apply for jobs and improve their overall chances of employment!
Do your friend a favor and let them know about this great opportunity to get educated - they won't regret it!
All classes are in the large classroom at the Community Technology Center, located on Level 4 of the Central Library downtown. No registration is required; simply arrive five minutes early to claim a computer, as space is limited. All classes are free and open to the public.
